I added pecans which accented the butterscotch. My husband couldn't wait to try it and cut it before it cooled!


Very easy to make and perfect for the non-chocolate people. It was a big hit with all.


That is what my husband said the first time he tasted this fudge 11 years ago when we were dating. I have had this recipe for years though mine uses grated orange peel and orange extract for the flavoring. It is always a big hit with guests and family. As far as my husband is concerned, it is officially Christmas once I make this!


My 8 year old Grandson is my biggest Fudge critic. I usually make four flavors at Christmas time. I decided to add this recipe last Christmas after finding out my grandson likes Butterscotch. He says it is the Best.


my family requests this quite often especially during the holidays so i make it quite often.


I made this fudge early this morning and just tried it. It was so very good. Kids loved it also. I did make it without the nuts thou. The next time I think I will add the nuts. I will be making this again .


I made this fudge last year for christmas and it was gone in a few days. I plan on making this again this year.
