this fudge sounds so good, I love butterscotch and the only thing that could make this fudge better is to coat it in chocolate…lol…it would be more like a candy bar that way… :lol: I’ll try this one very soon!

Ooooo… covering the fudge in chocolate really sounds delicious. Thanks for the tip! :lol:
