Caramel Sauce:

  • 32 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped

  • 5 tablespoons heavy cream


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup butter, melted

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Make sauce: Melt together caramels and heavy cream in a medium saucepan over low heat; stir occasionally until smooth. Set sauce aside.

  4. Bake crust in the preheated oven for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle crust with chocolate chips and walnuts. Drizzle with sauce and crumble remaining oat mixture on top.
