Nutty Marshmallow Caramel Bars

Nutty Marshmallow Caramel Bars

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Chop 1 c almonds and add to a large bowl with 3/4 c flour, 3/4 c oats, 2/3 c packed brown sugar, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 ts salt and 1 egg.  Mix together until combined.

Stir in 1/3 c margarine that has been slightly melted and stir until mixture is crumbly.  

In a 9x13 pan spread the mixture out evenly and bake for 10 minutes.

After baking, pour 7 ounces of marshmallow creme over the hot bar and then drizzle with a caramel sauce.  If you don't have caramel sauce you can melt 1/4 c butter with 1 cup brown sugar and allow that to cook to make a similar sauce.  After the marshmallow and caramel layers, finish with 1 c chopped almonds.

Bake again for another 20 minutes.  Let cool and slice into bars with a wet knife to prevent the bars from tearing when cutting.  Enjoy!
