  • CRUST:
  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 40 caramels
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 cup M & M chocolate candies
30 mins

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Melt 3/4 cup of margarine and add oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, soda, and salt. Stir ingredients together until mixed thoroughly. Reserve approximately 1/8 of the crust mix to crumble over the top of the bars just before the final baking.  Pat the rest of the crust into the bottom of an ungreased 9" x 13" baking pan.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes. While the crust is baking, combine the caramels, milk and maragarine in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until caramels have melted. Stir the caramel mixture often while melting.
  • When the crust is done, drizzle the caramel mixture over the crust. Then sprinkle the M & M's evenly over the caramel topping. Crumble the remaining crust over the top.
  • Bake again for 15 minutes. Allow to cool and cut to desired size.
  • Tip: Use holiday colored M & M's to produce bars with a more seasonal appearance.
