2 cups evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup

1 pound milk chocolate candy coating, melted

Grease four baking sheets with 2 tablespoons butter; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan, combine milk, sugars, corn syrup, salt and remaining 1 cup butter. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 238° (soft-ball stage), stirring occasionally.
