    excellent but rich

    K Cooper from

    A nice change from chocolate but pretty rich. I may cut back on the amount of white chocolate chips next time. Also, I had to bake it for an extra few minutes to be sure the oat topping was cooked. Very good!

    JUDE ZWEIBOHMER from Ossian, IA

    This is one of the few bars I take anywhere, I've been asked for the recipe by non-bakers because these would be worth it.

    The Best

    Amanda Mullins from LEBANON, OR

    These bars are the best I have ever tasted. I am going to be selling them at my bake sale and I know they will go really fast. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Great Taste

    Donna Hall from AUBURN, WA

    These bars were easy to make and taste fantastic. They are very high in calories so although the recipes says it is for 36 bars, I find that you could cut each of those bars into 2 pieces. They wouldn't last longer, but those who are satisfied with one piece will be leaving the other half for someone else.

    Big Hit

    Jessica Amphion from ZACHARY, LA

    I liked these. But everyone else LOVED them. You have to really love white chocolate. They are very crumbly, so if you give them to kids be ready for a mess.0

    Easy To Make

    Carolyn MacCormack from ANDERSON, SC

    I made these bars for a meeting that I went to and had quite a few people ask where I got the recipe from. They are very sweet and tasty!

    TOO SWEET!

    Becca Waltrip from MURRIETA, CA

    These bars were delightful...IF you have a HUGE sweet tooth! People said they tasted like frosting! They were really sweet. Next time, I will cut down on the white chocolate and caramel or I will put semi-sweet chocolate chips instead or white chocolate chips.

    Super Bowl Hit!

    Jewels from Des Moines, IA

    Everyone asked for this recipe! I didn't read correctly and added the caramel to the remaining oat mixture instead of drizzling it-turned out awesome! The top wasn't as crumbly. Pretty rich so cut into small bars!

    Oatmeal Caramel Bars

    Judy Bailey from ALTAMONT, NY

    WOW! These were good but, a bit sweet. Moist, chewy and wonderfully flavored with oatmeal. I'd make them again. However, I already cut back on the amount of chips , next time I'd cut back on the caramel also.

    Everyone's favorite

    Patty Cardinal from Farmington, NH

    I made these bars for a Chirstmas party at work and they went as fast as I got them out. Everyone loved them. I only got a small piece, but that was enough to know how good they were. Not hard to make either.

  •  Star(s)

    Good Bars!

    Laura Schwengel from EAU CLAIRE, WI

    My bars turned out well. I beat together the butter and sugar, then added in the flour and oats with ease. Good texture, flavor, and easy to make without being boring.

    Yummy

    cricket elieff from Syracuse, NY

    I only had 2 sticks of butter on hand but I made these anyway. They were very yummy, everybody loved them but the top was very dry and we had crumbs everywhere. But they were still very good.

    Paula Peters from GRANTSBURG, WI

    Perfection In A Bar!!

    CAROLYN MALTBY from MADISON HEIGHTS, MI

    Not only were these bars easy to make, they tasted wonderful! I took them to work with me - I work with about 15 other people in my office - they were gone in less than 2 hours!! They are also versatile in that you can use other flavors of chips and or toppings. That I really like!

    TOO GOOD

    MICHELLE BRAND from Ballston Spa, NY

    I just made 2 batches of these - one with milk chocolate chips and one with white chips. Both are equally delicious, so much so I am afraid they won't make it to the luncheon they were made for. These are easy to make and versatile (different chip and nut mixtures). I know I will make these very often in the future.

    Very nice and easy

    RANIA Moustafa from MORGANTOWN, WV

    I substituted the white morsels with swirled morsels, it was more dark chocolate when it melted. but it was very nice. I took it to a baby shower and everyone liked it. the oatmeal gave it a nice crunch. thank you

    half and half chips

    tianne c from coquitlam, BC

    these were great. the oatmeal mixture wasn't too crumbly unlike a lot of recipes I have tried before. I used half chocolate and half white chocolate chips and omitted the nuts altogether because of preference.

    White or Semi-sweet

    Erin M. DeWitt from GRAND RAPIDS, MI

    I made these cookies a couple days ago for my family, and they were fantastic! Actually, when it came time to sprinkle the white chocolate ships, I realized I had none! So instead, I made them with semi-sweet chocolate pieces, and they were wonderful that way too! Hopefull we'll enjoy the white chocolate just as much in the future.

    Best Ever Bars...

    Deb Becker from BROWERVILLE, MN

    These were the best bars I've ever had. Someone brought them to church for a potluck. Everyone was asking for the recipe. Rather than wait for her I decided I had to look it up right away so I could make them for my family to try too. Awesome!

    Amy Kramer from Hudson, OH

    They seem to come out different every time... and unfortunately, they do not always come out they way they are supposed to be! But when they do, they are absolutely the most delicious thing I've ever had in my life! (Even when they don't work right, they are still amazing!)

    By far, the best cookie I've ever had. I've searched and finally found the greatest cookie recipe on this earth! A perfect 10, in my book. Oatmeal, caramel, and white chocolate- what could get better than this?!

    Awesome

    Linda Young from Canyon, TX

    Excellent and very easy.Great for any kind of entertainment. A great bar cookie for having on hand. Make some extra and freeze for unexpected guests.

    A quick winner..

    Julie Demcheshen from Haymarket, VA

    Crumb top is a little 'crummy' - I would drizzle some extra caramel on the top after it comes out of the oven; otherwise this was a real hit at our house!
