  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan.
  2. In a small pan over low heat, melt the butter or margarine. In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 cups quick cooking oats, brown sugar, baking soda, and melted butter or margarine. Mix until crumbly. Press half of mixture (about 2-1/2 cups) in the greased pan. Set aside the rest. Bake for 8 minutes.
  3. In a small pan over medium heat, combine caramel topping and 1/2 cup flour. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Still stirring constantly, boil for 2 or 3 minutes until slightly thickened. Spread apples and nuts onto the baked crust. Pour hot caramel mixture evenly over apples and nuts. Sprinkle reserved crumbly mixture evenly over the top.
  4. Return pan to oven. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan. Cut into bars. (Refrigeration makes cutting easier). Store tightly covered.

I have made this treat over and over for my co-workers. Everyone asks for the recipe. Very tasty!

These are very good but very rich. I only had 1 c. of caramel topping, and even that seemed like a bit much. I also used a 13x9 pan, since I didn't have the larger size, and it worked out fine. ...

I made this last week and it was great. I added a generous amount of cinnamon and I will also add raisins the next time.

This recipe was good, but the crust part was a bit bland. I added cinnamon, but it also needed a bit of salt.

Dissapointing. Lacked flavor. Maybe using Kraft Caramels in place of the ice cream topping/flour mixture would help.

This is a great recipe - everyone loved it!

My family/guests loved this. I definitely thought it needed more apples, but loved the texture of the caramel and bar parts!

Too heavy and too sweet!!!
