In a large saucepan, gently heat the butter, corn syrup, and sugar until everything is melted together with the sugar dissolved. Stir in oats to completely coat.
Scoop everything into the prepared pan. Use an uneven spatula to spread out evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Let cool for about 5 minutes. Leaving contents in pan, slice into thin rectangular bars. Let completely cool.
Use foil to lift contents onto cutting board. Slice again to separate.
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat up chocolate chips with shortening, cooking in 20 second bursts and stirring well between each time, until chocolate smoothly stirs together. Use a fork to drizzle over flapjacks.
