Lightly grease cookie sheet, set on wire rack.

In pot, dissolve 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup light corn syrup, and 3/4 cup butter.

WITHOUT STIRRING, boil to 300-310 degrees on your candy thermometer. Remove and wait two minutes. With WOODEN SPOON, stir in paste food coloring, using 1/2 to 1 tsp. oil flavor (and color) per batch. Pour at once into sheet, letting cool 20-30 minutes.

Lightly dust both sides with confectioner sugar and break into pieces. It's very pretty and good tasting. Excellent for holiday giving!

The major thing wrong with this recipe is: It comes out looking like opaque stained glass and not like translucent sea glass. On the positive side, the flavor is good.

Crack chocolate by banging pan on countertop a couple times or use back end of table knife on the chocolate, breaking into pieces.

Put pieces into a small or pint jar, cover with lid, decorate the jar. Add nice ribbon or bow with gift tag. Great little holiday gift to give. Great for the family too.

Better yet, use real chocolate, it's cheaper and WAY better for you. The wafers are filled with wax and fillers and expensive to boot (compared to on sale bags of chocolate chips!). But a good idea!

It helps to heat the cookie sheet in the oven so when you spread it around it flattens out better.

It sounds delicious I am going to make it for my sons.

Place both chocolates, the butter, and the cream in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until the chocolate is melted, stirring after every 45 seconds to prevent overheating.

I would like to know ways to use POUNDS of white chocolate chips that melted (by mistake) and now are a solid mass. Could it be remelted and molded into ornaments or gifts of some sort?

Thank you.

You could always freeze it then break it up with a hammer and use the chunks in baking just like you would use the chips.

You could make chocolate cookies and dip the top half or half side of your cookie. Great Halloween cookies are the chocolate cookies in shapes of ghosts and bats. Dip the top for the ghosts and dot eyes & dip wings of the bats.

Also you could make a no bake chocolate pudding pie and put the a spider web on top with your melted white chocolate. For other great idea try checking out

Buy a bag of large twisted pretzels and dip them in the melted chocolate. Be sure the chocolate does not get too hot. If it is too thick, thin it with a little vegetable shortening. Never try to thin it with liquid. Dip the pretzel, tap it lightly on the edge of the pan so the coating is rather thin. Lay it on waxed paper and sprinkle with cake candies before the chocolate gets cool. A plate of these makes a nice Christmas gift.
