An old time buttery treat is made even more tempting with a chocolate layer.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon lecithin
  • ½ cup nuts (cook's choice)
  • 3 cups chocolate or chocolate coating
Combine everything except the nuts and chocolate in a heavy saucepan. Cook to 285 degrees F. Spread onto a buttered marble slab or silicon mat placed on a baking sheet. Cool completely. Melt chocolate and spread half onto cooled candy. Sprinkle with half of the nuts and allow to set. Flip over and spread with remaining chocolate and sprinkle with remaining nuts. When firm, break into pieces.
