Day 3 - Butterscotch Sauce

So, not that you could tell from this post, but we are low carb/good carb. Occasionally, however, I like to give the kids a treat and seeing as today was our first full day of homeschool, we decided to make butterscotch sauce to go on some ice cream.

You need 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup), 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup evaporated milk, and about 1 Tablespoon vanilla.

Melt the butter

Add the brown sugar

Once it is melted, cool slightly and add the vanilla and milk.

It will foam up spectacularly. Then just stir it vigorously for a minute or so.

I then pour it out in a shallow layer, put nuts in for those who like it, and then put it in the fridge to cool down. Once it is cool, serve it on ice cream (or eat it off a spoon :)
