Real Butterscotch: The Beauty Of Sugar And Dairy Transformed
Will the real butterscotch please stand up? And no, we're not talking to you, waxy "butterscotch" chips in the baking aisle, or you, plasticky hard candies. We want the smooth, creamy, delicious baby of heated dairy and sugar. Because what can go wrong about that?
Once you get to know butterscotch — and all its creamy, salty, crunchy accoutrements — you'll never go back to those waxy chips again. And you'll want to spread the word, bringing butterscotch into its rightful place in the pantheon beside chocolate and vanilla. Because butterscotch — real butterscotch — is a thing of beauty.
