Can substitute caramel sauce in a jar for caramel candies in a bar that I am baking?

Its so time consuming unwrapping each candy and softening the candies in a bowl over boiling water. It has an oatmeal crust and is baked with the soften caramel and chocolate hips!!! Thanks you!!!!

I would not recommend substituting with caramel sauce. The sauce will likely still have a sauce-like consistency when the bars cool, but the caramel candies will become firm again at room temperature. It may be too difficult to cut and serve your bars if you use sauce.

just as I suspected. Thank you!
