Absolutely delicious, chewy and chocolatey, these morsels are pure pleasure. Use this recipe as a base and experiment with added flavors like maple or chili. Seriously yummy!
- 1 Cup granulated sugar

- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Place sugars, corn syrup, half-and-half and chocolate in large heavy saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring to melt chocolate and dissolve sugar.
