Butterscotch Sauce

Fancied something really sweet after dinner so to avoid being tempted by any chocolate decided to make this to pour over ice cream!

Ingredients

1oz butter
1oz brown sugar
1 tbsps golden syrup
1oz nuts chopped
A squeeze of lemon juice (optional)

Warm the butter, sugar and syrup until well blended. Boil for 1 minute and stir in the nuts and lemon juice.

I don’t think it matters what kind of nut you use, I used walnuts. I only had walnuts and pistachios in the cupboard and thought the walnuts were more suited to this. I opted to put in the lemon, only a few drops.

We had this warm with ice cream. As soon as it was cooked I poured it over some vanilla ice cream. As it hits the cold ice cream it starts to harden slightly and turns into a glorious sticky sauce! It reminded slightly of the chocolate sauce we used to have as kids, the stuff that hardens when it hits the ice cream! It creates a wonderfully sticky, sweet sauce but with a nice crunch from the nuts. I couldn’t really taste any lemon juice so would try a splash more next time.

Apparently this should make enough sauce for four. Well this was only just enough for the two of us, let’s just say I could’ve quite happily eaten the entire lot! Is brilliant with ice cream but also think it would be really nice with an apple pie.

Would I make this again? Definitely
