They are very rich, so you may want to cut your bars somewhat small.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
You will need a greased 9" square pan.
1/2 cup(1 stick) butter, melted
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt( if the butter is salted, do not use)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a large pan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and mix in the oatmeal, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract, and salt-if using.
Spread in the square baking pan.
Bake for 6-8 minutes or until bubbly.
Take out of oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top- right away.
Let soften for about 5 minutes and with a knife, spread the chips.
After cutting, store them in the fridge.
Cutting them into 2"x1" bars will give you 36 pieces.
