Nice caramel and chocolate bark candy! I had a problem with butter and sugar separating half way through boiling it but I just drained the separated butter out and used the remaining caramel mass and it turned out well. I would probably use only 1/2 cup butter next time to avoid this.

My Grandmother just made this and it was wonderful. Except for the chocolate since we ate it all, we have these things on hand all the time!!!!
