I have always loved these from when I was a kid and my mom used to make them. Of course, every time I make them they never harden correctly (not sure what I do wrong) but the butterscotch is the best as it has a caramel taste. I am still convinced that my mom secretly cast a spell on this recipe and that she is the only one the recipe works for....see how they turn out for you!!
P.S. This still never prevents me from trying every year to make them. And even when they don't harden correctly I still eat the gooey globs of goodness!!
