Easy Butterscotch Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a fabulous sauce that is so simple to make, it is rich and silky. I have tried many different recipes for Butterscotch Sauce and I always come back to this one. If you want you can make a double recipe and keep the extra portion in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator for up to a month, just spoon out what you need into a saucepan and heat gently, and whisk constantly.
