I was really happy to have found this recipe--there don't seem to be too many that combine butterscotch and fudge. These are definitely good -- very sweet, but I feel that the fudge overwhelms the butterscotch. I suggest cutting down the chocolate by half so that there will be an even ration between the two. Otherwise, this is a terrific recipe. It's like eating a block of fudge.
