Maple Walnut Fudge
CooksRecipes.com vistor and avid cook, Sandy Donovan, suggests substituting the white chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and 2 tablespoons real maple syrup for the extract. She and her daughter were so thrilled with the results, they made several batches to give away as gifts during the 2001 holiday season.
