Updated Jul 11, 2011

Ingredients

Crust

Filling

  • 1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

Topping

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Reserve 1/2 cup cake mix for topping. In large bowl, beat remaining cake mix, 1/2 cup butter and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until set.

    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat caramels, 1/4 cup butter and the condensed milk over medium heat about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth.
  • 3
    Spread caramel filling evenly over partially baked crust. In small bowl, mix reserved 1/2 cup cake mix, the oats and 3 tablespoons butter with fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over caramel filling.
  • 4
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes longer or until top is set. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen bars. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Get your kids involved in making these bars by letting them unwrap the caramels. Just make sure the caramels don't disappear!
  • tip 2
    Be sure to buy sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk. They don't work the same way in recipes.
