This one was pretty good and fairly simple, but one does have to be sure the pan you put it into is not a glass one. You can use even a cookie sheet, and without even chilling it, and once it has cooled and the chocolate is set you just sort of twist the metal sheet and the candy will break into pieces. You can hit it with a hard knife, spoon, or other utensil if the pieces are large and you want to make them smaller. Just a tip I use when I make any hard candy. I also like to put some chopped nuts (preferably pecans) on top of the melting chocolate.
