"Ended up making this for a Sunday Back to School BBQ. I had to end up using sugar-free butterscotch as my vanilla one was open when I opened the box :o( Not sure what the vanilla one tasted like but the butterscotch was a huge success. Will make it again with vanilla. I bought the package of mini butterfingers, I believe 6 or 8 in the pkg. It worked! Loved the recipe! Delicious!! Thanks"

"It is important to have the nutritional information, especially if you are following the Weight Watcher program and need to track points. One person said the calculated the recipe and it had 191 calories with 3.3 grams of fat and yet another said their rating came to 145 calories and 7.8 grams of fat...that is a big difference, especially in fat grams. Sounds like a great receipe though, so I will have to do the research and break it down to find out for sure. Thanks !"
