      Far and away, the best butterscotch dessert EVER! I used light muscovado sugar and dark brown sugar instead of demerara. Had great results and an extremely butterscotchy flavor.

      Mean Chef this recipe is wonderful. It was forwarded to me by a friend who knows I LOVE pot de creme. And I can say that I LOVED this one too. Using the muscovado gave it a very different flavor. But oh so yummy and oh so creamy. My husband loves butterscotch and he really really liked this recipe. Thank you again and I can say that I will be making this again very soon.
