Gorgeous fudge I love it, I did think that it may have been better if there was more of the butterscotch. It was quite difficult to cover the chocolate layer. Next time I will double the amount. Also allow a little time for the chocolate layer to cool before adding the butterscotch layer. I allowed 15 minutes in the fridge, but this was not enough as the chocolate layer was lifting when I was trying to spread the butterscotch. I don't like nuts so I used heath's toffee bits as a sub. Good overall fudge, just know I will me making this again.

I wasn't crazy about this. It lacks that pure, melt-in-your-mouth texture you can only get from butter. It's almost a little rubbery although fully edible. But if you're a bit of a purist about fudge, I'd suggest trying a more traditional recipe.

So delicious! The only change I made is microwaving the chips and Eagle brand, it litterly takes 5 minutes to make this yummy fudge

Easy to make, hubby really enjoyed these. Might save a little more of the condensed milk for the butterscotch half next time as it was rather thick.

I used white chocolate and omitted the nuts--the results were fantastic. I used my stove instead of the microwave.

I made this for Christmas around the same time that I had made a Cappucino Fudge from Annie's eats blog . I must say that the texture of fudge that is made with marshmellow cream is so much better, it's silky and smooth, this fudge not so much. It's okay, and I did get some complements on it but I'll stick with the Annie's eats recipe.
