To round out a great Mexican meal, I serve these. The chewy bars have a tasty oatmeal crust that's covered with gooey caramel ice cream topping, chocolate chips and walnuts.—Rhonda McKee, Greensburg, Kansas

MY REVIEW

These are excellent! I love making them in the fall!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2012

We didn't really like these. I baked for 20 min, just as the recipe said, but they seemed way over baked. They just weren't anything special.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2010

These were very greasy and there were too many chocolate chips. I couldn't taste the caramel at all. If I were to make these again, I would try decreasing the butter and chocolate chips to 1/2 cup each.

These are excellent - they taste like a candy bar! I used chopped pecans instead of the walnuts - super!!
