This recipe is inspired by Martha, but with a few changes by me! I make these every year for Christmas, and last year I took some into work and ended up having to make 2 more batches to bring in because everyone loved them so much! The butterscotch comes from the caramelizing of the sugar and butter NOT from butterscotch chips, which sometimes confuses people. Either way they are yummo! Feel free to mix it up with different types of chips or nuts, this combo just happens to be to my favorite. Also DO NOT use margarine, it contains too much water and the butterscotch will not set up correctly.
