Chocolate Brittle

2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. water
12 (1.05 oz.) milk chocolate candy bars
3 c. chopped pecans

Combine butter, sugar and water in a Dutch oven; stir well. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until candy reaches hard crack stage (300 degrees). Lightly butter 2 (12 inch) pizza pans. Remove sugar mixture from heat and immediately pour into pans, spreading to edges of pans. Place chocolate in top of a double boiler, bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook until chocolate melts. Spread chocolate over brittle; sprinkle pecans evenly on top. Press pecans into chocolate. Cool until chocolate is firm. Break into pieces. Yield: about 4 pounds.
