Found this recipe in a local cookbook. Love butterscotch hard candy so of course had to try it. It is really good!! give it a try!
As you can see from my picture. I scored it too soon, so when I broke it it didn't follow the score lines. but still tastes great! these taste just like Werthers candy!!
