4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 1/4 cups milk
3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
In a saucepan heat the chocolate and milk on low, stirring until it's melted. Add the sugar, corn syrup and salt and heat to the softball stage (236 degrees F).
Add the butter and pour off into a mixer bowl to cool. Add the vanilla and beat with a paddle until it starts to lighten; then quickly add the nuts. Continue beating on low until it loses its gloss and thickens. Pour into a greased 9 by 9-inch pan and spread evenly. Let cool then cut into 1-inch cubes.
