 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 11 oz caramels about 35
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup cashews halves and pieces


In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, crushed crackers, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
Beat the butter and shortening, with a stand mixer, until smooth.
Cream the brown sugar and granulated sugar.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture and stir until combined.
Stir in the rolled oats.
Remove one cup of the oat mixture and set aside.
Press the remaining oat mixture into a foil-lined jelly roll pan.
Put the sweetened condensed milk and caramels in a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 3-4 minutes, stirring after each minute until the caramels are melted and the mixture is smooth.
Pour the caramel over the bottom layer in the jelly roll pan.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and cashews.
Crumble the remaining cup of the oat mixture over the top of the bars.
Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes.
