NUTTY CHOCOLATE BAR COOKIES

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar, divided
3/4 cup butter, divided
1 pkg (4-oz) German Sweet Chocolate
1 cup corn syrup
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and line it with foil; set aside.

In a small bowl combine the flour with 1/2 cup of the sugar. Cut in 1/2 cup of the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.

Meanwhile, microwave the chocolate with the remaining 1/4 cup of the butter in a large microwave-safe bowl on high until butter is melted, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Stir in the corn syrup, remaining half cup of sugar, eggs and vanilla. Stir until well blended. Pour the mixture over the crust and sprinkle the nuts overall.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the filling is set. Cool completely in the pan then cut into 36 bars.
