I mixed together the butter, sugar and maple flavoring. It is too think to make balls. Please help..I don't know what I did wrong? I have it in the fridge hoping that will help. Do you melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips together. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

These are excellent and indeed very easy to make! I guess I was overly generous in coating them as I ran out of the melted chocolate to the point where I could have used almost double. Ooops.Very tasty, a good addition to my candy collection

These are really good, and easy. My mom loves maple flavored treats, I made these for mother's day and she loved them.
