This is one of many “NO BAKE” recipes that I keep in my recipe stash. Who doesn’t love a recipe that is short, quick and resulting in something scrumptious? Really you can’t go wrong by stirring something into melted chocolate or in this case a mixture of white chocolate and butterscotch.You can find me elsewhere too.
