OH MY GOD. I should have used pudding mix. This recipe was EXTREMELY difficult. Making butterscotch is MUCH more complicated than combining butter and sugar. First time when I tried to "make it smooth", it burned. Then, when I made it "right", it tasted like rice pudding. Upsetting because this was my chosen dessert for Thanksgiving TOMORROW.
