    Absolutely love those bars! So scrumptious! Sweet, yet salty. Chocolaty, smooth and little crunchy. It has it all! Perfect to take anywhere. Very easy to make, just follow the recipe. They come out perfect every time!

    I have made this recipe too many times to count, always gone in minutes. I use the caramel bits to save time instead of unwrapping all the squares and it works out better than ever. Love it.

    Followed recipe exactly. DELICIOUS! Really, really good. Buttery oatmeal crust and topping with a tiny hint of salt. Creamy, gooey filling. Couldn't find Kraft caramels so used Werther's soft caramels which worked fine. Great recipe. Will definitely make again.

    I love this recipe! I do make a few changes that do not affect the taste at all in my opinion. If I can make something healthier without changing the taste, I feel like I have to do it. First I cut down the butter to 2 sticks, and then I melted it instead of cutting it in. I used 1 cup of all purpose flour and 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour. Then to the caramels I used a 1/3 cup of 2% milk instead of heavy cream. Additionally, I added chopped almonds to the top layer, which does affect taste.

    I don't know what happened; I made this according to the directions. My husband said they taste like "nothing" and I agree. Very bland.

    Manal4 - I've been making these bar cookies for years. For the filling, my recipe calls for 1 jar of caramel ice cream topping (14-16 oz jar), 1 bag of semi-sweet choc chips and 6T of flour mixed together before spreading on bottom crust.

    This recipe sounds very tempting, the only problem that I don't have the caramel candy cubes so I need to know the weight of that amount so I can substitute it with another kind of caramel. so please if anyone know the weight kindly inform me. Thanks alot.

    Ooey-gooey and delicious. Used all the butter and the caramels - I baked the lower layer a little longer than the top layer so it was crunchy on the bottom with the crumbly on the top. Definitely a decadent treat but so worth it for the chocolate and caramel mixture between the crunchy oats.
