Carmel Oat Bars?

When I was a kid growing up my father used to make a wonderful bar called "Carmel Oat Bars". I have done several searches on the net and none of them sound like it. It is made with oatmeal, brown sugar and butter, that is cooked to make the carmel bar. You then placed chocolate chips on top till melted and then spread evenly. Chill and cut into bars. If anyone has this recipe I would appreciate it as I am not good at giving it a go myself.

1 cup quick oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
14 ounces caramels
1/3 cup milk

1/2 cups walnuts

Combine oats, sugar, flour, butter baking soda and salt. Line a 9 x 13 inch pan with foil and grease the foil. Press one cup of mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Melt caramels with milk. Note that some candy caramels are softer than others and if using a very soft caramel, use less milk. Pour this caramel-milk mix over the crust.

Top with chocolate chips and nuts. Dot the remaining oat mixture over the top of this. Bake at 350 degrees an additional 10 minutes.

Cool and refrigerate to set caramel before cutting. Lift foil out of pan for ease in cutting into bars.

I have a recipe that's much easier than all of these. [and really yummy.]

Oatmeal Caramelettes

2 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. old fashion oats
1 1/2 c. brown sugar (i prefer light)
1 tsp. baking soda
(if you HAVE to, substitute baking works they just dont rise as much)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter (or stick margarine) softened
1 jar Smuckers caramel flavored ice cream topping
1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together flour, oatmeal, soda, butter, and brown sugar till well combined and crumbly. Press 3/4 or mixture into greased 13x9 (glass) dish/pan. Bake 10 min.
[at this point mixture should be solid and slightly raised (more so if you used soda vs. powder) but not browned]
Take out and pour caramel topping evenly over entire mixture. Sprinkle chocolate chips and then remaining (1/4) mixture on top. (You can also add nuts if you'd like.) Bake additional 20-25 min. until golden and bubbly.

These are so yummy and addicting! Enjoy!
