Old Smoothie Candy Bar Recipe

If you're of a "certain age" you might remember buying Smoothie candy bars at the candy store, They were shaped like a Reeses Cup but had a different flavor. The candy cup had kind of a light butterscotch taste with a crunchy texture. When I had allowance money or "pop bottle return cash" (oh, you are in my age bracket!!) my brother, Greg, and I would go down the street to Berthie Doak's Grocery and buy candy: Smoothie bars; little wax pop bottles with juice inside; Pumpkin Seeds with the Indian Chief on the box or Boston Baked Beans. If you didn't have enough for these larger items, there was a bunch of penny and nickel candy in that glass case that was just as good: jawbreakers, tootsie rolls, gum and Charm pops....oh, and my favorite, blue wax lips!! Anyway, the maker of the Smoothie cups put little cardboard coupons with points inside and if you saved up so many points, you got "free" candy. I was seven or eight and not an "A student" in math, so this seemed like a good deal, at the time! :0)
Here's a recipe that is just like the flavor of those Smoothie candies. You'd better make a batch for Christmas, because I don't think you can buy them anymore.....if so, I'm sure they're not ten cents!
