Deliciousness should be shared!

On Christmas Eve my daughter-in-law Breanna brought these yummy bars to our family party. We have now renamed them Breanna Bars and have offically nominated her to bring them to every family get together. Warning: They can be hightly addictive!
Breanna Bars
2 cups butter (yes, that is what makes them soooo good)
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
3 cups flour
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 jar caramel topping (I buy the Smuckers 20 oz. squeeze bottle)
16 oz. milk chocolate chips (or more...yummy!)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Soften butter in microwave. In a large bowl mix butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, salt and soda together. Take 3/4 of mixture and press on cookie sheet (press up the sides). Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. Let cool, then pour on caramel, spread evenly. Sprinkle on chocolate chips and walnuts. Sprinkle remaining cookie mixture on the top. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350.
They are really gooey and yummy when they are warm, but they are even better when they are cool and crunchy and even better for breakfast the next day, or lunch and/or dinner.
As Breanna would say "Deliciousness should be shared". Here's to sharing.
Thanks Breanna!
