This sauce is smooth, rich, sweet with melt in your mouth texture. This texture comes from the good amount of butter.

In past years, I used buy the ready made jar of butterscotch sauce. That time I was not that worried or I could say I was not much conscious about what I am eating. But as I grew, I gained knowledge and learnt many things.

Among them, the one is NEVER consume stuff which has high fructose corn syrup. Since then I have been making many recipes at home. And one of them is this sauce and second is chocolate sauce.

Recently my husband went to Germany and over there he came to know that corn syrup is banned in Europe. For whatever reason it is banned but it is good for people for SURE.

There is one more benefit of having the homemade one that it tastes much much better than the jar one.

Give this a try and enjoy as an ice cream topping.

Once cools completely, you can store in airtight container in the refrigerator for about 2-3 weeks. At the time of serving reheat in microwave to make the sauce runny consistency again.

Serving suggestion: Enjoy this sauce warm or chilled over the ice cream, milkshakes or cakes. I have drizzled this sauce over the eggless butterscotch cupcakes.
