Ingredients

cup butter
or margarine, melted
2 cups oats, quick cooking
whole grain
½ cup brown sugar, light
packed
*
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ teaspoon salt
omit if using salted butter or margarine
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
*
¼ cup walnuts
chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Grease well an 8" square glass baking pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine well the melted butter and oats; stir in the brown sugar, corn syrup, salt (if using) and vanilla extract. Pour into prepared pan and press in evenly.

Bake for 14 minutes. Remove pan and turn off oven.

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top and return the pan to the oven for 2 minutes.

Using a sprayed offset spatula, spread the softened chips over the top; sprinkle with the chopped nuts.

Allow to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate for 2 hours.

With a sharp thin knife, go around all the edges of the pan. Gently remove the whole from the pan and place on cutting board. Cut into squares and then triangles.

These are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge during warm weather.

I thought this was so yum, yummy. I used only 1/2 the chocolate and were still super rich and would recommend a strong black coffee with it.
