This homemade butterscotch syrup is way better than store-bought syrup. Real butter and heavy whipping cream are the keys to this sweet treat, which you’ll need to make our Ultimate Butterbeer recipe, inspired by the Harry Potter series.
4 tbsp salted butter
.75 Cup brown sugar
.25 cup plus 2 tbsp of cream
1 tsp vanilla
- Add the butter and sugar to a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly so that the sugar doesn’t burn.
- When butter is melted, whisk in 2 tbsp of heavy cream. Bring to a boil and cook for four minutes, whisking occasionally, until mixture deepens in color.
- Turn off the heat and whisk in remaining .25 cup of heavy cream, followed by the vanilla extract.
- Store in an airtight container or Mason jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
