Comment on this recipe

Note: Chopped nuts or chopped candied cherries may be added to the melted mixture. Also, other flavors of chips (peanut butter, mint, etc.) may be substituted. Just keep total weight of chips at 18 ounces.

Ingredients

1 package (6 ounces) butterscotch chips
1 package (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1 package (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

In a heavy saucepan over low heat, combine butterscotch and chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt. Stir constantly until melted and combined. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Line an 8-inch square pan with foil. Bring foil up over edges of pan. Butter foil. Pour melted mixture into prepared pan. When cooled and set, lift out of pan using foil edges. This makes the cutting into squares easier.
