    Dawn, I'd like to try this, but I am having a little trouble understanding it.

    What is the "caramel topping"? Is it the stuff you give the recipe for at the top? Or do you mean some caramel topping you would buy in a store?

    Whatever the case, thanks for sharing!

    Dawn, thanks for sharing. I showed it to Jen yesterday and we are going to make some for the weekend.
    I assume one could drizzle bourbon over the top if one desired?

    Re: Caramel Bars

    The Caramel topping is the stuff you buy in a jar to pour over ice cream. It will take a whole jar of it. You mix it with flour to thicken it so it's not so runny in your bars.

    To take up less space, I didn't make an ingredient list ......does it make sense now?
    Hint: when you put the second half of the oatmeal mixture on top....you have to try to leave crumbles eavenly across the top. Crush small amounts of it between your fingers to cover the top. Try not to drop big "blobs" like my daughter did when she helped.
