Butterscotch Sauce

I am a fan of the Brahms ice cream parlors in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas and enjoy their ice cream whenever my travels take me through those states. My favorite treat is their brand of caramel ice cream topping. I do my best to stock up when I can, but it is a long drive to get more when I run out.

Last year our neighborhood had a pot luck and one of the women made a wonderful hot fudge chocolate sauce that was to die for. When I asked for the recipe she gave me a whole page of candy and ice cream topping recipes that included this butterscotch topping. It can easily be doubled to make enough for an ice cream social if you have a large enough pan to hold it all as it bubbles, but I prefer to make several smaller batches so I don't eat too much at one sitting. :)


 1/4 cup butter
 1 cup white corn syrup
 1 cup brown sugar
 1/2 cup evaporated milk
 dash of salt (optional)


In a medium sized sauce pan heat the butter over medium heat until melted. Reduce heat to low, add the sugar and syrup and stir frequently for 15 minutes until slightly thickened. It should coat the back of a spoon at this point. Be sure to use a large enough pan because it does expand with bubbles as it simmers which is why it needs stirring. When it is thick enough slowly add the milk while stirring vigorously until hot and well combined. At the end I like to stir in a dash of salt to turn up the flavor a little more. Cool, transfer to a covered container and store in the fridge. Travels well in the RV.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
