Yes, rich and addictive, a terrific slice to add to my holiday stash. Made two butterscotch recipes for the butterscotch fans, this and your Recipe#67506 - and it was "you better hide them" Other then saving a few for tonight's holiday tray they are well hidden! Thank you for another of your recipes that makes for a winner at our house.

Dh is the butterscotch and peanut fan at our house. These were a bit too sweet for him but the neighbor boys LOVED them. They stayed soft and pliable the second day, not brittle and crumbly. Beyond that I can't say, they're all gone.
