  • 1 white cake mix
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 12 oz jar of caramel ice cream topping
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Mix the cake mix and oats together in a large bowl. Use a mixer to add the peanut butter until well combined.
  • In a separate small bowl, beat the egg together with the milk. Add the egg mixture to the cake mix and oats and mix well.
  • Reserve 1 cup of the oat mixture and set aside. Press the rest of the mixture into the bottom of a well-greased 9X13 pan.
  • In another bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer for 1-2 minutes until well blended and smooth. Add the caramel topping, beat for 2 more minutes until smooth. Pour the caramel mixture on top of the crust.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top of the caramel layer. Sprinkle the 1 cup of reserved crust on top of the chocolate chips.
  • Bake at 350° for 28-30 minutes or until the top is light golden brown. Cool and then cut into bars.
