Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup hard, dark butterscotch candies, finely chopped, plus more for garnish (optional)
1 pint vanilla ice cream, for serving
Heat cream in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until almost boiling. Stir in chopped candies, and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until candies have melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let sauce cool slightly.
Divide ice cream among four serving bowls, and top with sauce. Garnish with additional crushed candies, if desired.
