butterscotch [buht-er skoch] adjective noun
A term that is often used interchangeably with toffee, but is a flavor as well as an actual candy. It is made by combining brown sugar and butter and can be found in blondies, cakes, cookies and many other desserts, including butterscotch pudding. The candy itself is a hard candy that hails from Scotland and dates back to the 18th century. Butterscotch chips, which can be found near the chocolate chips in the supermarket, bear little resemblance to the real thing. It is also an artificial flavor used in the candy and liqueur industry, commonly colored in clear yellow/amber. Try our ButterScotch Sauce.
