Chocolaty Caramel-Nut Smore Bars

Ingredients
2
cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (36 wafers)
1/2
1
11 ounce package caramel baking bits*
1/4
cup whipping cream*
2
cups tiny marshmallows
1 1/2
cups mixed nuts, cashews, or cocktail peanuts, coarsely chopped
1

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan. Lightly grease foil; set pan aside.
  2. In a large bowl stir together the crushed chocolate wafer cookies and butter. Press mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool crust in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan heat and stir caramel bits and cream until caramel is melted and smooth. Pour caramel mixture evenly over crust.
  4. Bake about 12 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan and onto a cutting board. Cut into bars.
