This was my first attempt at making any variety of hard candy--well, besides years ago when I attempted peanut brittle and it flopped. But this, my friends, turned out beautifully.

Since I didn't alter any part of the recipe [minus using milk chocolate instead of dark] I'm going to send you to Five In Tow for the recipe.
