"I made this recipe today, I followed directions completely, it 8 hours later and it still has not set. Not sure what went wrong but a total waste of money and ingredients!! I'm so disappointed!"

"Very good! Next time, I think I will melt the butterscotch chips before adding them to the pot - some did not melt and I ended up with some pieces of the chips in my fudge."

"I love this recipe and even my picky father really likes it! My favorite thing about it, is that it isn't too sweet!"
