Ever since I made my scottish butterscotch biscuits, I have been absolutely obsessed with butterscotch. Believe it or not, I don’t think I have ever had butterscotch before that! Now I’m hooked and want butterscotch in everything.
Since I’ve decided to make as much homemade as possible, I decided to make my own butterscotch sauce. This sauce is definetly best fresh, but can keep in the fridge for up to 10-14 days. When you’re ready to use it, simply microwave in 30 second increments stirring between until the desired consistency is reached.
What a smooth, buttery, thick sauce perfect for pouring over ice cream or brownies, or just eating off the spoon.
This makes a small batch, only about 1 and 1/2 cups, but can easily be doubled or tripled for how ever much you need. Since I’m the only person in this house who really eats butterscotch, I don’t need much more than that sitting in the fridge.
It’s so easy to make too. Simply melt the butter and brown sugar together until smooth, and mix in some heavy cream. Simple, wonderful, and ready in less than 10 minutes!
- 1/2 C Butter
- 1 C Brown Sugar
