For the crust and topping, beat the brown sugar, butter and shortening in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the flour, oats, salt and baking soda. Beat until mixed. Reserve 2 cups of the oat mixture. Pat the remaining oat mixture over the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch baking pan.
Toss the apples with the flour in a bowl. Sprinkle the apples over the prepared layer. Heat the caramels in a small saucepan over low heat until melted, stirring frequently. Drizzle the caramel over the apples and sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F (preheated) for 25-30 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. Yield: 3-4 dozen bars.
