Ingredients

Crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Filling:
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 cup butter
1 cup whipping cream (I use evaporated milk)
2 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


To prepare crust, combine flour, 1/2 cup butter and 3 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl.


Mix with a fork until well blended.


Press into a lightly greased 9-inch square pan. Prick with a fork and bake until lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.


Remove from oven and sprinkle with chips; let stand 2 minutes, then spread chocolate over crust.


To prepare filling, place 1 1/3 cups sugar in a heavy saucepan; cook and stir over low heat until melted and caramel colored, about 20 minutes.


Stir in corn syrup, I cup butter and cream.


Cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.


Remove from heat and stir in walnut. Immediately pour over crust, smoothing to make an even layer.


Drizzle with melted chocolate and refrigerate until firm.


Cut into small squares to serve.

Notes

I personally prefer pecans to walnuts but either can be used.
