Butterscotch Taffy Recipe

It's a good thing that this recipe isn't a lot of fuss— the soft tempting taffy goes so fast I sometimes don't even get to wrap the pieces!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:60 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 48 large marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) butterscotch chips


  • 1. In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, marshmallows, water and salt; cook and stir over low heat until smooth. Add chips; stir until melted. Pour into a buttered 8-in. square dish; cool. Cut into 1-in. squares. Wrap individually in waxed paper; twist ends. Yield: about 5 dozen.
