Recipe: Cranberry/Oatmeal Bliss Bars

After Christmas, we had a rather large amount of Craisins onhand. Mom suggested topping cereal and oatmeal or adding them to pancake batter. All great ideas, but I wanted to utilize a bigger quantity - rather than just a handful - of the dried berries all at once. Having fallen in love with my coworker's "Oatmeal Caramelitas," I decided to tweak the recipe. Why? Because when I think of oatmeal and brown sugar as ingredients (both separately and together), my mind automatically goes to fruit and milk, not chocolate and caramel. In my version, I substitute chocolate chips with Craisins and opt for condensed milk over caramel sauce. The Maldon Sea Salt Flakes finish these bars with a delightfully savory kick!
