Supremely yummy and comfort foody! I have to have butterscotch chips brought to me from the States, and this is worth every imported chip!

Yum Yum Yum ! This was so good, and easily doubled. I ended up using just over 6 cups of bread and 3 cups of liquid, as I didn't think it looked 'wet' enough, and combined milk, half and half, and cream. Everyone just loved this - and I'll definitely be making it again. Thanks for posting !
