Carmelita Dream Bars

3/4 c. melted butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1 t. baking soda
30 baking caramels (un-wrapped)
1/3 c. heavy cream
1. c. chocolate chips (plus about a 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top of the bars) ( I used a mixture of semi- sweet and milk chocolate. Butterscotch would work well too!)

For drizzle10 unwrapped caramels
2 TBLS heavy cream

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x9 pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, stir the melted butter, brown sugar and vanilla until mixed. Add the flour, oatmeal and baking soda and continue stirring until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
Using half the batter, press down evenly onto the bottom of the pan.
Bake for 10 minutes. (Do not over bake)
Meanwhile, place the caramels and cream in a small sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until all the caramels are melted and blended.
Pour the caramel over the hot bars. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the caramel and carefully drop several dollops of the remaining dough on top of the chips, flattening slightly. Use the remaining chips to press on the top of the dough.
Bake for an additional 25 minutes making sure not to over bake as the caramel may then get hard.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Cover with foil and place in the refrigerator to firm up for an hour.
Meanwhile, stir the remaining caramel and cream in the sauce pan to drizzle over the top of the bars when they come out of the refrigerator.
Bars may be cut into 16 bars and caramel may be drizzled before or after you cut them into bars. (I drizzled mine after I cut them so the caramel sauce runs down the edges! ;)
