    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.
