Copycat See's Chocolate Bordeaux. Makes approx. 2 lbs. Found this recipe on multiple site, but I used this site for all my recipes, so I thought I'd add it. I love milk chocolate bordeaux and can't wait to try this. http://ewifeblogsagain.blogspot.com/2011/12/make-your-own-sees-bordeaux.html http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/30/p/156797/158148.aspx#158148

Excellent recipe. <br/><br/>Do yourself a favor and use a whisk when incorporating your powdered sugar. It does a far better job getting the sugar all the way in. I learned this making butterscotch squares as well. <br/><br/>I use a heat diffuser I picked up for a few bucks online with my candy making, and it's helped a lot too. I'm not so paranoid about scorching.<br/><br/>Finally, if melting the chocolate is a terrible pain in your behind, throw in a tablespoon of shortening (or more) per cup of chocolate when you melt it. It thins things out, makes the chocolate easy to work with, and generally turns the messiest part of the job into the easiest.
