  recipe for caramel oat bars from England.
  
  1. Heat oven to 350'F. For base, beat butter and sugar in small bowl
  of electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 3
  minutes. Add oats and flour; beat until smooth. Press into greased
  8-inch-square or 9-inch-square baking pan. Bake until set, 20 minutes.

  brown sugar to a boil in heavy saucepan over medium heat. Boil,
  stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
  Pour caramel mixture over cooked base; allow to cool completely.
  
  3. To prepare icing, melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Stir in
  cocoa and water until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar; stir until
  mixed well. Spread over cooled caramel layer. Allow to set before
  cutting. Store refrigerated.
