Directions:
Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Add sugar; cook and stir until melted, 3 to 4 minutes. Add water and corn syrup. Continue cooking over low heat without stirring until small amount of syrup dropped into cold water becomes brittle (300 degrees on a candy thermometer), 15 to 20 minutes. Do not undercook. Remove from heat. Immediately pour onto greased baking sheet. Cool until hardened.
