I love, love, love butterscotch. My dad, not so much. So, the first time I made this dessert, I figured I had better not make it at home. All he would do was complain because it was too sweet or not chocolate enough for him. If you haven’t figured it out yet, my old man is pretty picky when it comes to satisfying his sweet tooth. But, nonetheless, I loved this recipe, not only because of its overabundance of butterscotch goodness, but because it was easy as well. While I intend to try this one on the family, I’m still not so sure I actually want to share it with them :)
