      I made this yesterday, and it turned out great. I will admit I've been cooking for over 50 years, so perhaps a few words of advice to those who try this after me: #1. Don't try to make candy when it's humid or damp. #2 Don't trust your thermometer. I started testing for soft ball stage when the temp was 230, and to my surprise, it was ready. #3 You should have a pan full of molten gold. I poured mine into my glass mixing bowl and beat in the powdered sugar...but I stopped at 1 1/2 cups because it looked like it was thick enough. Sure enough, it set up just fine, and is very sweet. A tiny piece goes a long way, but it does very much resemble the See's butterscotch squares in flavor (also my favorite). Oh, and #4 ALWAYS use real butter. <br/>Thanks for a keeper recipe.

      Lovely taste and texture. My second attempt at fudge (the first was gritty with undissolved sugar.) and it went very well. I have a tip not included in the recipe; do NOT scrape the sides if the pot after it boils, the undissolved sugar from the sides will cause all of the sugar to crystalize.

      I just made this and like one of the reviews I got a crumbly mixture. I've been making candy for a long time. I think this is something having to do with my dry climate and high altitude. There was a time when I was adding the powdered sugar that I thought the consistancy was about right, and I still had a lot of powdered sugar to add. I will make this again, because it tastes delicious. Just looks weird. Next time I will add powdered sugar until I get the thick creamy texture you get immediately when making chocolate fudge. I hope this helps someone!
