Linda T's Butterscotch Pecan Dessert

I went to a church event and this little beauty was beckoning my name. Normally, I am not a fan of butterscotch at all, but I thought I would live dangerously and give it a try! I am so glad I did, because it is definitely blog worthy, aka my taste buds approved!
I believe the original recipe comes from Taste of Home and was submitted by Becky Harrison in Albion, Illinois! But, for my purposes I will always remember this as Linda T's recipe! You will notice in the pictures you will see red sprinkles.  They were added just because she had a wild hair!
Can I make you fall in love with a dessert that doesn't have chocolate??

3-1/2 cups milk
