"This has become my "not lot's of chocolate" go to. Hubby really likes them.

I sometimes leave out the white chips, or substitute another type. Mint was surprisingly tasty."

"I was looking for a recipe without chocolate or nuts so I made this using white chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. It was very sweet but it had a nice texture and was a big hit."
