Butterscotch Ice Cream Topping

Wonderful homemade goodness and true butterscotch flavor make this sweet rich sauce a well-enjoyed gift. We like it over ice cream or slices of pound cake. It reheats well in the microwave.

    The taste was delicious but it hardened up as soon as it hit the ice cream. Be careful to pour it in thin "strands" so it won't be too chewy.
