This is very simple to make and you can make changes to the type of chocolate and nuts you use. I have used Walnuts instead of Pecans and it was great.

Ingredients

Base:  
1/2 cup butter, softened  
1 egg yolk  
1 cup flour  
2 tablespoons powdered sugar  

Topping:  
3 eggs  
1/2 cup brown sugar  
2 tablespoons flour  
1/4 teaspoon salt  
2/3 cup corn syrup  
1 tablespoon lemon juice  
1 cup pecans  
1 cup chocolate chips  

Directions

Base: 
 
Combine butter and egg yolk in a mixing bowl. Add flour  
and powdered sugar. Press into a greased 8 inch square pan.  
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.  

Topping:
  
In a large bowl, beat eggs until slightly foamy. Combine  
brown sugar, flour, and salt. Stir into the eggs until  
blended. Beat in the corn syrup and lemon juice. Stir in  
the pecans and chocolate chips. Spread over the base.  
Bake at 350 degrees. for 35 to 40 minutes, until the top  
is set and the edges are browned. Cut into squares when  
cold.
