Butterscotch Sauce

Here is how to make Butterscotch Sauce from scratch, using the most basic ingredients. You will be amazed by how well it turns out. Enjoy the sweet and enamoring flavour of this sauce with puddings, ice-creams, pastries and just about any dessert. One thing to remember is that this sauce must always be used warm, as it gets hard like a toffee when it gets completely cool. So, if it gets too cool, re-heat it slightly before using. Also handle this sauce carefully as it tends to stick on and scorch if it falls on your skin.
