Butterscotch Sauce

Butterscotch Sauce


Major Key: The sauce thickens as it cools down.  Be sure not to over boil.


4 tbsps unsalted butter

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla extract



1. Melt the butter in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan (not non-stick) over medium heat.

2. Add the brown sugar, salt and heavy cream and stir the mixture with a rubber spatula until it's well blended. Bring the mixture to a boil, scraping down the sides occasionally, and boil it for 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour butterscotch sauce in mason jar or similar to cool.
