  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8Ã?8-inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray, then set aside.
  • In a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat melt the butter. Once melted, remove from heat and add the brown sugar and vanilla, stirring until combined and smooth.
  • Add the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt, then stir until thoroughly mixed.
  • Spoon half of the mixture to the prepared pan and press down with the back of the spoon to form a uniform layer. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the bottom cookie layer bakes, add the heavy whipping cream and caramels to a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the caramel is completely melted and mixed with the heavy cream, around 6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate, Pecan M&Mâ??s®, and chopped pecans over the top. Take the caramel sauce and pour it over the candies and nuts to create a uniform layer.
  • Take the remaining cookie mixture and carefully crumble it over the caramel layer and pat down gently. Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 13-15 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and puffy and the center is bubbling slightly. Cool completely before cutting.
