Ingredients:  
1 Cup butter
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
3 Tablespoons Water
1 Tablespoon light-colored corn syrup
1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds (toasted)

Directions:
Directions:
Line a 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan with foil, extend foil over edges. Set aside.
Butter the sides of a 2-quart heavy saucepan. In saucepan, melt butter; add sugar, water and corn syrup. (I find using a metal whisk works best). Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture boils. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan. Reduce heat to medium; continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate stirring frequently until candy thermometer reads 290, soft-crack stage (approximately 15 minutes). Make sure to adjust heat as necessary to maintain steady boil. Watch carefully after 280 to prevent scorching. Remove saucepan from heat. Remove thermometer. Pour candy into prepared pan, spreading very quickly.
Let candy stand for 2 minutes or until set; sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Let stand 1-2 minutes until chocolate pieces have softened. Spread over candy. Sprinkle with nuts. Chill about 20 minutes or until firm. When firm, use foil to lift candy out of pan; break into pieces. Store tightly covered in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
