Tips and Tricks
➡ Make sure not to scorch the butterscotch chips when melting but stirring constantly. If you’re using a microwave, never let them go for more than 15 seconds without stirring.
➡ Allowing the fudge to set in the fridge for a few hours before slicing will make it easier to get clean sharp cuts.
➡ Swiping the knife with vegetable oil will also help give you a perfectly clean cut!
