Butter Brickle

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Yes, pure candy but is fun to make! Sometimes it will be a bit sticky, and other times it will be very crisp! Depends on the moisture in the air, the cooking time, etc. Just enjoy it no matter what, as even if it gets a little "over-cooked", it becomes more like a burnt sugar treat!

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
about 1 cup or less of dark chocolate chips or chocolate squares
sprinkles of semi-coarse sea salt

Lightly butter a large cookie sheet, or use a silicone baking mat. You can very lightly butter the mat as well. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, melt the butter and then add the sugar and water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a slow simmer. Gently cook and stir, do not splash the mixture up onto the sides of the pan. Cook until the mixture becomes dark and just starting to "smoke" a bit. Pour onto the prepared pan and allow to stand for about 5-10 minutes or so, to harden up but still warm. Gently sprinkle with the chocolate chips, and when melted spread out. Sprinkle with a bit of salt. Allow to cool completely before breaking into pieces.
