This is a recipe that I have been making for many years. The base is an oatmeal mixture that is rich and buttery and topped with chocolate and pecans. It is very easy and quick to put together and my family has always enjoyed it.


2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat oven to 400. Grease a 9 x 9 x 2 baking pan. In a medium bowl, mix oats and brown sugar. Add butter, syrup, salt, and vanilla. Press evenly into pan. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until top bubbles. Sprinkle chocolate morsels on top while still warm and spread after it melts. Press pecans into the melted chocolate. Chill until hardened. Cut into bars.

Combine oatmeal mixture in a medium bowl:

Spread into a greased pan:

Bake until bubbly:

Sprinkle with chocolate morsels:

Top with pecans:

Chill and cut into bars. Try not to eat them all in one sitting.

Hey Guy,
I think you would like these, and of course you can make them sans pecans.
