Reviews for Butterscotch Fudge
"Made this fudge for a Christmas treat in my neighbor's gift box. I poured it into a Rubbermaid 9 x 13 plastic covered dish and it stayed moist and fresh for two weeks. I also put in pecan instead of walnuts. Very good."

"butterscotch flavor over-runs the maple, but sill good"
"Easy and good!"
"Very easy recipe. This is my first time at attempting fudge. Did not take long at all to prepare. I did not use as much sugar as called for, used vanilla instead of maple flavoring and stirred in chopped pecans. Came out very delicious."
