Caramel Turtle Bars

Scripture to Live By:
Lord, our Lord,  how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
  Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,   the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,what is man that you are mindful of him,   and the son of man that you care for him?Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings  and crowned him with glory and honor.You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.O Lord, our Lord,   how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalms 8

Recipe Post: I found this Caramel Turtle Bars recipe in my Bisquick Cookbook.  I really like turtle candy so I thought I would try this recipe.  It is simple to make and tasty.  So if you would like to try it you will need the following.  

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cups of packed brown sugar
1/3 cup margarine or butter softened
2 eggs (I added one extra egg. The original recipe called for 1 egg.)
1 bag (14 ounces) caramels
2 Tablespoons milk
1 cup of chopped pecans
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon of canned Crisco (I added the Crisco to make the chocolate chips melt better.)

Heat oven to 350 degree.  Stir Bisquick, oats, brown sugar, margarine and eggs until well blended.  Press in bottom of ungreased 9 x 13 x 2 inches. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown, cool.

Heat caramels and milk in 2 quart saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted.  Spread over crust.  

Sprinkle pecans evenly over caramels.

 Heat chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon of Crisco over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted.  
Drizzle over pecans.

Cool 30 minutes.   Cut into bars.  

Makes 24 bars if you cut it 6 rows across  and 4 rows down.
Very tasty.
