  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Peel the plastic wrapping from the caramels and melt them in a saucepan over medium heat along with the milk. ( If using a microwave, use a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the caramels and milk in the microwave at medium power for 2 to 3 minutes, checking every 20 to 30 seconds.) Stir and set aside.
  3. Melt the margarine and combine with flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
  4. Press slightly more than half the oat mixture into a greased 11 x 7 inch pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the mixture, then pour the caramel over the chips. Top with remaining oat mixture.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes; cool. Cut into bars.

The taste is great, but the consistency is total mush - way more than just chewy. If I make these again, I might double the amount of the crust (oat mixture) for a more solid base. I also might ...

These are excellent! Something to make the recipe even easier is to substitute caramel sauce for the wrapped caramels (omit milk, too!). They turned out just as delicious with this change. I ...

I brought these bar cookies into work and everyone raved about them. At least ten people asked for the recipe. It was very easy to make and assemble.

The taste was awesome but I too had a problem with it being very gooey. I tried the hint about baking the bottom for 12 minutes first, but it still came out too gooey to actually cut into bars. ...

The recipe I have for this is doubled and bakes in a 9x12 pan. Also, pecans are added with the chocolate chips and caramel. The caramel are melted with evaporated milk. Very rich, and very go...

I made this for a 4th of July cook-out, and they were gone within a couple hours. I didn't have an 11x7 pan, so I used an 8x8 and it turned out perfect. My husband is already begging me to make ...

I have been making this exact recipe for years. I don't change a thing and they come out perfect everytime. They are always quick to go when on an assorted cookie tray. Great for the chewy choco...

Easy and delicious. Lots of requests for the recipe and the people at work yelled at me for breaking their diets. :D The crust seemed way too greasy with melted butter during prep, but once i...
