A buttery sauce to serve over vegetables, potatoes, pasta and rice! Uses those butter-flavored sprinkles (i.e. Molly McButter) and comes out amazingly delicious!

I didn't expect to like this too much, but I was pleasantly surprised. Like the other reviewer said, it was thick and creamy and so simple to make. I immediately baked a potato in the microwave and served it with snipped chives and a tablespoon of this sauce. Nice light taste, creamy mouth feel, much better than a plain potato. The recipe made 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon. I entered it into Mastercook and it comes out to 15 calories per tablespoon. Not bad. I used Butter Buds.

Very good for a dieters version of butter sauce. It was thick and creamy. It was so super simple to put together too, I think the whole thing took 5 minutes. Thanks for sharing this.
