Recipe

Caramel M & M Bars

Crust:
3/4 cup butter
1 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Topping:
40 caramels
4 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup M & M chocolate candies
Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Melt 3/4 cup of butter and add oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, soda, and salt. Stir ingredients together until mixed thoroughly. Reserve approximately 1/8 of the crust mix to crumble over the top of the bars just before the final baking. Pat the rest of the crust into the bottom of an ungreased 9" x 13" baking pan.
Bake the crust for 10 minutes. While the crust is baking, combine the caramels, milk and butter in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until caramels have melted. Stir the caramel mixture often while melting.
When the crust is done, drizzle the caramel mixture over the crust. Then sprinkle the M & M's evenly over the caramel topping. Crumble the remaining crust over the top.
Bake again for 15 minutes. Allow to cool and cut to desired size.
================================================
Now. . . if I was a good blogger I would have remembered to take a picture of these wonderful little bars to show you what they look like. The only problem was I thought of this after the last bar had been taken out of the pan a mere two days after the pan had been made!!
They are simply delicious, and of course, like all other goodies, are calorie free!!
