Let's get right to this one! Begin by combining your butter, brown sugar, 2 cups flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Press half of the mixture in a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes and remove from oven. Meanwhile combine your chocolate chips, finely chopped pecans, and remaining flour in another bowl. Toss to combine, and set aside. In a medium saucepan, over medium low heat, combine the caramels and milk, stirring frequently until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth. Sprinkle the chocolate chip nut mixture over the warm crust. Pour the melted caramel over the chocolate chip nut mixture. Sprinkle, or flatten the remaining crumb mixture over the top of the caramel. Return to the oven and bake an additional 15 minutes. Store the completely cooled bars in the refrigerator. These were devoured quickly by the kids and their friends. The ones I saved for the FFH to bring to the firehouse were gone quickly as well. Try them. One can never have too many cookie recipes in her arsenal.
