Recipe #12: Fudgie Scotch Ring


Recipe #12 is not a cookie at all. It’s a simple and easy retro candy recipe that my mother first made back in the 70’s. At the time, the recipe could be found in every “woman’s” magazine. It soon became an annual favorite in our family. The special flavor created with a few simple ingredients is hard to forget and for me, it has become one of the “tastes” of Christmas.

  • one 6 ounce package semi sweet chocolate chips
  • one 6 ounce package butterscotch chips
  • one can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup of walnuts halves

Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips along with canned milk in the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Stir occasionally until the chips melt and the mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat; add nuts and vanilla. Blend. Chill for one hour until mixture thickens. Line bottom of a 9 inch pie pan with waxed paper. Spoon chocolate into a circle to form a ring. Decorate with nuts. Chill until firm and then cut into slices.
