JPH's Butter Crunch - A Holiday Favorite

My sister makes the best butter crunch.  It is soooooo good.
JPH's Butter Crunch
1 1/4 Cup Butter
1 2/3 Cup Sugar
4 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 Cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 Cup chopped nuts
1/2 pound melted chocolate
Combine all ingredients except nuts & chocolate in sauce pan & cook to 300 degrees.  Stir in nuts and pour onto cookie sheet.  When cool, pour melted chocolate on top.  Place in refrigerator until hard.  remove & break into pieces.

Joyce's hint: Using a candy thermometer makes the butter crunch come out perfect every time.
