MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2014

"Oh my! So rich and chewy! Very good as is, but the chocoholic in me wants to do as ljakes suggested and switch the amounts of chocolate and butterscotch chips around the next time I make them. I did use dark corn syrup as it was what I had on hand and I prefer it over the light."
