Caramel Apple Butterfinger Bars

Made these the other night for a small impromptu dinner party.

They're awesome. Easy and fast to make.

I ended up halfing the recipe and baking it in an 8x8. Heads up on the caramel. 
My jar of caramel sauce said it was 12oz but actually only has 8 oz of caramel in the jar.
Oh, and I actually forgot to pre-bake the oatmeal crust and they still came out perfect so..

Found the recipe on Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.

Totally worth making.

Caramel Apple Butterfinger Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cups butter, melted
2 cups Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced VERY thin
1 jar caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
5 regular size Butterfinger Bars, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 350. 

Line a 9x13 pan with foil and spray well with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, quick oats, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Stir in melted butter until completely mixed in. Press 3/4 of mixture into pan and bake for 9 minutes.

Spread apple slices evenly over crust.

In a small pan, heat caramel and flour over medium heat until it starts to bubble. Remove from heat and pour over apple slices. Sprinkle Butterfinger pieces over the top, and top with remaining crust mixture, crumbling evenly over bars.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and let cool to room temperature before covering with foil and chilling completely.
