Recipe Ingredients for Bordeaux (like See's Candy)

1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk
2 tbs. light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Bordeaux (like See's Candy)

  1. Spray an 8" square pan with pan spray. Set aside.

  2. In a heavy 3 quart saucepan, melt butter. Add sugar, evaporated milk and corn syrup; stir well. Bring to a full, rolling boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.

  3. Cover pan and continue boiling very gently over low heat for two minutes. Remove cover and scrape sides of pan with rubber scraper.

  4. Continue boiling, uncovered, over low heat until mixture reaches 236'F on a candy thermometer. (It is not necessary to stir mixture during cooking time, though gently scraping sides of pan occasionallyis desirable. DO NOT SCRAPE BOTTOM OF PAN.)

  5. Pour mixture into a heat-proof bowl. Do not scrape sides and bottom of pan. Place candy thermometer in mixture. Place bowl in 1/2" of lukewarm water. Cool mixture to 110'F without stirring.

  6. Add vanilla. Beat mixture until it thickens and starts to lose its gloss (note from Lisa: It doesn't really lose its gloss very much. I figured that out after 20 minutes of beating. Just beat it about 5 minutes. That should do it.) Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into greased pan. Cool until firm (the fridge does nicely). Cut into 1" squares. Store in covered container.

  7. Now, go make yourself sick!
