How to Make Butterscotch at Home — Butterscotch is a type of confectionery whose primary ingredients are brown sugar and butter. Butterscotch is similar to toffee, but for butterscotch, the sugar is boiled to the soft crack stage, not hard crack as with toffee.
Ingredients Needed to Make Butterscotch
4 tablespoons unsalted butter [BUY HERE]
3/4 cup light-brown sugar
2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make Butterscotch Directions
- In a heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat, add butter and sugar. When butter is melted, whisk in 2 tablespoons heavy cream. Bring to a foamy boil, and cook 4 minutes, whisking occasionally, until mixture deepens in color.
- Turn off heat and carefully whisk in remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream, followed by vanilla extract.
- Transfer to a small 8-ounce mason jar. Do not scrape down sides of the pot (the burned-on caramel may make your sauce gritty). Allow butterscotch to cool slightly before securing with a lid. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
