  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the brown sugar, butter and shortening until smooth. Combine 1 3/4 cups flour, oats, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Set aside 2 cups of this mixture. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss apples with lemon juice, then toss them with the 3 tablespoons of flour. Spread the apple mixture evenly over the prepared crust. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt caramels, stirring frequently until smooth. Pour the melted caramels evenly over the apples. Sprinkle the reserved oat mixture over the top of the apple layer. Press down lightly.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the top is golden brown and the apples are tender. Cut while slightly warm and refrigerate any leftover bars.

These were quite good, but they do fall apart a bit when you try to cut them while still warm as the recipe suggests. I melted the caramels on the stovetop in a non-stick saucepan with a tablesp...

These bars were a huge success! If you are a carmel apple lover like myself, you will absoltuely love these! Great recipe for fall! Thanks.

I'd like to preface this by apologizing for this review. I was very disappointed. I followed the recipe verbatim. The chopped apples (I used Granny Smith) were mushy. The flavor was not outstand...

This is a nice change from regular apple crisp. Very easy to make. I layered caramel apple sheets instead of melting caramels. Saves tons of time unwrapping and melting caramels.

This was so good. I had some difficulty with the caramel topping because it didn't melt to a smooth consistency. A great success.

I'm not sure about the no fuss issue, but these are good. Now, how to get the bottom crust to be as crisp as the top. These are best eaten warm...oooh that top crust/crumbles. If I make this ...

Delicious . . . a great way to serve caramel apples.
