Butterscotch sauce is easy and delicious.

Butterscotch Sauce

This butterscotch sauce is absolutely delicious and can go over numerous desserts and foods.  I could honestly drink this sauce.  It is just that good and everyone who has it loves it.  My family would probably eat this sauce over anything.  You could double the recipe if making for a crowd.  It keeps well refrigerated for at least a week but mine never lasts that long.  It is wonderful over cake, ice cream, puddings, pancakes and waffles.  Pour it over apple slices or banana slices for a treat.  It goes with about any fruit.  You might also like to check out our recipe for hot fudge sauce.
