"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

cup packed brown sugar
1 cups flour
cup butter, softened
1 cup rolled oats
1 egg

1 (14 ounce) pkg. caramels, unwrapped
1/3 cup half & half

1 cup large cashew pieces
1 large Hershey bar, coarsely chopped

Grease a 9 x 13 pan. In a large bowl beat brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Lightly spoon flour in measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour and oats. Blend well. Press into greased pan. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes, or until light golden brown.

Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, combine caramels and half & half. Heat over low heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Pour caramel mixture over baked crust.

Sprinkle cashews and chocolate chunks over caramel. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes or until chocolate is softened and caramel just begins to bubble around the edges. If desires, swirl softened chocolate chunks with knife. Cool completely before cutting.
