Hello! I’m Amy from My Name Is Snickerdoodle and I’m super thrilled to be posting today as a member of Mandy’s new contributor team!
Sometimes some of the most simple ingredients make the most amazing recipes and this Butterscotch Sauce in no exception! It also comes together in no time which is a huge perk when satisfying those sweet cravings. Which I hate to admit, comes a little too frequent in my house!
Over the few (okay, many) times I’ve made this, I’ve discovered how yummy it is on everything! One classic way is to use it for dipping apples or even drowning a scoop of ice cream in it. My all time favorite way, though, is to drizzle it over waffles that have already been slathered in Nutella and topped with bananas. AND possible served with a dollop of whipped cream.
However you choose to eat it, I promise you that you are going to love it!!!
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 tsp salt
12 oz can of evaporated milk OR 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
In a medium pot over medium-high heat, combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt and milk together. Bring to a boil and cook for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and mix in vanilla. Let it cool for 20 minutes before serving. When storing, cool completely and place in an airtight container. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
When reheating, place in a microwave safe container and heat for 30-60 seconds.
