Aunt Pat's Chocolate Butterscotch Candy

“My Husband's Aunt Pat brought this recipe to a family gathering over the holidays. One Taste and I was hooked. This is so easy that even smaller children can make this with supervision. A co-worker told me she substituted Craisins for the raisins, and she was pleased with the results. I thought coconut might be a nice addition as well. Enjoy :)”
