had my little girls girlfriend over so i wanted something that most 8 yr olds like. Very quick and easy! I made 2 diffrent batches butterscotch and chocolate. Instead of sugar I used 1/3 c of agave nectar and 4T of cocoa for the 2nd batch and I love it!

Thank you so very much.

I'm not sure how many people rate a recipe before trying it, but when I was a child my Mother used to make this from scratch for me. She passed away when I was only 14yrs. old. I am now 60 years young and I can still taste her special treat she made for me from her heart. When I saw this, it brought back such good heart full memories. Your ingredients are the same as hers. I can't wait to make this for my dear grandkids, I know they will love it as much as I and I will have a good story to tell as they eat it!

this is a great recipe except i use only half the sugar it calls for and it is still super sweet!!!! I suggest they cut down on the sugar!!!! it tastes like homemade goodness though!!!!!
