Chocolate and Caramel Oatmeal Bars
Here is the link to the original recipe. It's a Betty Crocker. It's hard to go wrong with Betty
Betty Crocker Chocolate and Caramel Oatmeal Bars
These weren't bad, but I think I'd change things up a bit. They start out with a yellow cake mix and quick rolled oats. You add butter, chopped pecans, chocolate chips, and some thickened caramel topping. Predictable and consistent, to be sure. But maybe lacking a little something.
If I were to make them again, I'd probably add something else to the cake mix mixture. Cinnamon, perhaps? A little less butter or more oatmeal may have made for a more crumbly mixture. Mine turned out very wet. A more of a streusel topping would have made my heart sing a little louder.
All in all, a dependable, quick to whip together concoction. It'll be in my recipe file, but maybe not for super special events where I'd like to wow someone. 1. 2.
