butterscotch syrup

A quick and easy defense against those sudden sweet-tooth attacks. :)

You will need:

  • 1 can of cream or condensed milk
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Directions:
  • Combine all ingredients in a pan over low heat.
  • Stir constantly and bring to a boil.
  • Let cool and store.
Really simple!


Suggestions:
  • Top over ice cream for a nice sundae.
  • Drizzle pancakes, waffles or crepes.
  • Use as a dip for fruit or pretzels.
  • Try it with bananacue or turon with vanilla ice cream - a real treat!
  • Pour over a nice, moist chocolate cake or apple pie (oh, just thinking about it makes my mouth water).
  • Eat it as is, like I often do. :)
  • Store in a pretty jar and gift to a friend.
