Excellent recipe. <br/><br/>Do yourself a favor and use a whisk when incorporating your powdered sugar. It does a far better job getting the sugar all the way in. I learned this making butterscotch squares as well. <br/><br/>I use a heat diffuser I picked up for a few bucks online with my candy making, and it's helped a lot too. I'm not so paranoid about scorching.<br/><br/>Finally, if melting the chocolate is a terrible pain in your behind, throw in a tablespoon of shortening (or more) per cup of chocolate when you melt it. It thins things out, makes the chocolate easy to work with, and generally turns the messiest part of the job into the easiest.

Super easy and oh so good. die hard See's fan said these were better than See's. Just be careful not to over cool before shaping.

Oh my gosh, I just made this for the first time and it's gone! Have to make another batch for an upcoming Christmas party this weekend-I'll have to hide it from the family. Can't say enough good things about this recipe, sincere thanks for posting it
