Thick Butterscotch Sauce

Makes 1 1/2 cups

For the perfect consistency - thick but pourable - serve this sauce slightly warm.


  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter

  • ½ cup packed dark-brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • ¾ cup light corn syrup

  • cup heavy cream


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add sugars and corn syrup. Using medium heat, bring mixture to a boil; cook about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; slowly stir in heavy cream. Allow to cool slightly, and serve (or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 1 week, and warm before serving).
