This was my Grandmothers favorite Candy, and Making this sure does bring back Memories. I am Posting this in her Memory.
These are very Creamy, and when Dipped In Chocolate, Are Just to good to pass up.
I have added (3) Versions, One with Nuts and one with out, one dipped in Butterscotch, one in Chocolate. So Many Versions and only one recipe. Your Imagination with this recipe is endless.

Enjoy this very Easy version. Makes Plenty, to "stash" just so you can enjoy "Just a Pinch" before they dissappear.
NOTE: Prep time is 1 hr. Plus chilling time.
Note: I am making these as I am Posting, If they Last Long enough for a Photo it will post soon!
Photo is 1/2 dipped in Butterscotch chips and 1/2 in Chocolate. Nuts on top are Maple walnut creams.
