  1. Preheat oven at 350°F.
  2. Line a 9 x 13 in anodized aluminum baking pan with foil and grease lightly.
  3. In a 3 or 4 quart stainless steel sauce pan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Once melted, increase heat to medium, stirring and scraping up any brown bits until golden yellow. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped chocolate bars.
