Apple Bars with Caramel Frosting

These are delicious and easy to make. Beware- they are very sweet, so you might not want to cut such a large piece.
Apple Bars with Caramel Frosting
bars:
2/3 c. of butter, softened
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 t. baking soda
2 c. flour
1 t. cinnamon
2 apples peeled and chopped
1 c. chopped walnuts
Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the baking soda, cinnamon and flour and mix until just incorporated. Add in the apples and nuts. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 and bake at 350 for 40 minutes, or until done in the middle. Let cool.

frosting:

1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. half and half

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add in the sugar and half and half. Bring to a boil while stirring. Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar.
