I have added butter to chocolate chips when melting them - I have not used butter when melting other chocolates - thanks for pointing that out to me - I would not want anyone to have the chocolate seize on them because of my post.

Marcy, "Please, Be Careful" of the Butter in the Chocolate candy making, it may or may not set up in some candy.
Fudge is fine, this is not a fudgey type of candy.

if You have done this and "KNOW absolutely for Sure", That it will not ruin someones candy, feel free to advise.

Cheryl, yes you can add butter to chocolate when melting so I think it would also be fine to add to the butterscotch chips.
