These perhaps may be the most beautiful, amazingly rich, tasty bars I have ever tasted in my life! I saw the recipe here and thought that I just had to give it a try for myself...melting Milky Way candy bars in a bar? Too intriguing of an idea to pass up. These bars are delicious and the hardest part about making them is opening up all the individually wrapped caramel candies! Easy peasy!
(I'm copying the recipe here since I can't seem to link to the individual post itself on iambaker.net. I know I'll be wanting to make this in the future!).
Oatmeal Milky Way Brownie Bars
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
2 cups Flour
1 cup packed Light Brown Sugar
2 1/2 sticks room temp. Butter
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt (I used Kosher)
2 cups boxed Brownie Mix
1/3 cup Canola Oil
1 bag (11 oz.) Kraft Caramel Bits
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
2 Milky Way Bars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sauce pan, place two Milky Way bars, entire bag of caramels, and half cup of heavy cream. Let simmer over medium to medium low heat until fully melted. Remove from heat and let cool approximately ten minutes.
In a large bowl combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, and butter. Either use a fork to incorporate or just use hands to combine. Its ok if there are some chunks of butter, you are looking for no chunk bigger then a pea though.
Add in two cups of brownie mix, egg, and oil. Stir until just combined.
Using a prepared 9x13 baking dish, spread half of the oat mixture into dish and press firmly to flatten.
Pour the melted Milky Way over the oat mixture. Make sure to get all the way to the corners.
Top with remaining oat mixture.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
