Microwave Butterscotch Sauce (Lighter)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Engrossed

I made this up when I was making Bread and Butter Pudding With Butterscotch Sauce (Lighter). It turned out pretty good! I decided to post it as its own recipe for those that want to make just it. It tastes more like caramel but when I read the definition of caramel it's white sugar that is browned and butterscotch is brown sugar cooked with butter. Anyhow...this could be made even more flavorful by adding orange zest, cinnamon or rum extract. Feel free to play with it. If you decide to use regular brown sugar double it because Splenda brown sugar is twice as sweet.

This is quick and easy and very decadent! I used it as a topping for my recipe #191335, and it was so good with the apple flavor of the cake. I'll be making this often, I think! :)
