2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup corn syrup light or dark
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate pieces
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Heat oven to 400 F.
Mix oats and sugar in a large, heatproof bowl
Melt butter; add syrup, salt, and vanilla. Pour over the oats and sugar; mix well.
Pat mixture into a greased square pan (I used 8x8-inches).
Bake 8-10 minutes--do not overbake! (How do you know it's done? It will be lightly bubbling on the sides)
Melt chocolate and spread on top--
Sprinkle nuts on top of this, and let cool, use a sharp knife they are sticky
