1 1/4 c Sugar
1/2 c Molasses
1/3 c Hot water
2 tb Butter or margarine
1/4 ts Salt
6 oz Semisweet chocolate pieces
2 c Finely chopped Brazil nuts
1 can Flaked coconut

In saucepan, mix sugar, molasses, hot water, butter and salt. Stir over low heat until a small amount of the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water (240-F). Remove from heat; add chocolate; do not stir. Cool to 150 F, and stir until chocolate is well blended. Add 2 cups nuts and coconut. Pour into buttered 8x8x2" pan, and press in 1/2 cup nuts. Let stand in cool place several hours before cutting in squares.
