Caramel Oatmeal Bars ~ These Oatmeal Bars Have a Delicious, Ooey, Gooey Layer of Caramel and Sweet Chocolate Chips! Quick, Easy Dessert for Anyone!

This recipe was a mistake. Well not a mistake but a dire attempt to save the night after my first pan of bars was a flop. I first made Salted Nut Roll bars and I had been looking forward to these bars for a few weeks so I couldn’t wait until the next day to sample one so I dug in. Oh wow was I disappointed when I tasted them. My peanuts went bad! I didn’t even know they could do this. They tasted, well, dirty I guess is what I would describe it as.

I was in panic mode. I was hosting a Tupperware Party the next night and about everything possible had went wrong last night when I was getting ready. I grabbed my go to cookbook from a local church and whipped it open praying that the good Lord above would have some kind of bar in there I had all the ingredients on had for. He did.

This cookbook had never let me down as it was tried and true local recipes made with love for generations. Luckily this recipe came through for me. I had rave reviews on them at the party and my husband couldn’t wait till after the party so he could eat the rest of them. He would have been disappointed if they were gone! As for my Salted Nut Roll bars…the recipe will be appearing soon as I am still craving them! Enjoy!

    Sounds easy and delicious! (well except unwrapping all those caramels 😀 )

  • Julie Evink


    I agree Missy! I usually make my husband do it while he sits on the couch while I slave away in the kitchen and he wasn’t even home to do it..although I think I might lose a few caramels to him 🙂

    Hi Julie, Could these bars be frozen? I’d love to make some for my cookie trays but I don’t like to do any last minute baking when I’m putting them together. Thank you.

    • Julie Evink


      I haven’t even tried freezing them but I think it would work just fine!
