Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Coat a 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray (or line with sprayed foil to help get them out of the pan after baking & make clean-up easier).
  3. Combine cake mix and oatmeal. Cut in peanut butter until mixture looks like fine crumbs.
  4. Whisk the egg with the milk and add to crumb mixture, stirring until well mixed. Reserving 3/4 cup of mixture, press remainder into bottom of pan.
  5. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add caramel and beat until well mixed. (Take the lid off the caramel jar then microwave for a few seconds to make more pourable.)
  6. Spread caramel cream cheese mixture over crust.
  7. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and reserved crumbs.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely; cut into bars.
  9. These are really rich so cut into small bars!
