We are definitely all about being healthy. But don't get us wrong, we still love a treat now and then! Plus making something yourself, if you have the inclination, allows you to control the ingredients. This Ridiculously Easy Butterscotch Sauce by Smitten Kitchen is begging to be coating some scoops of ice cream, roasted pears, or anything else that strikes your fancy.
Writes Smitten Kitchen:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve spied a recipe that promised butterscotch brownies or cookies or cake bliss and within that recipe suggested you make your butterscotch confection with … butterscotch sauce. From a jar. Or butterscotch chips. From a bag. I just assumed that butterscotch must be a thermometer-requiring, magic wand-waving difficult thing to make. That would explain it, right?
Well, I’ve been hoodwinked, bamboozled, misled and so have you because butterscotch — deadly good butterscotch, butterscotch so transcendent it might could bring tears to your eyes — is ridiculously easy to make. Five ingredients (spoiler: one of them is salt) + five minutes on the stove = I just can’t. I’m simply not savvy enough to apply language to how awesome it tastes.
Voilá! Now you can bamboozle yourself with how delicious this is. Original post and more mouthwatering pictures at smittenkitchen.com.
