  2. Mix brown sugar, butter and shortening in large bowl.
  3. Stir in 1 3/4 c flour, the oats, salt and baking soda.

  5. Toss apples and 3 T flour; spread over mixture in pan.
  6. Heat caramels over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; pour evenly over apples (don't worry if it's not perfect- caramel will even out during baking).
