Butterscotch is not my first, or even my 5th choice of flavors for dessert. In fact, it never even crosses my mind to add butterscotch chips, sauce or syrup to things. And to take it a step further, when I see someone swoon over butterscotch, I immediately judge their tastebuds and classify them as an amateur. I’m nice like that. Wanna be friends? Keep reading.
Determined to at least like butterscotch (because some ok people like it, so they must be onto something), I made butterscotch ice cream. I knew if I turned it into ice cream, I’d fall in love. Turns out, I know myself pretty well. I officially love butterscotch. Not the wax-like chips you add to cookies, no thanks. But a real homemade butterscotch ice cream. With real butter. And scotch. I’m almost speechless. Mainly because my mouth is stuffed with rich, creamy, buttery ice cream. But also because this stuff is so good I just don’t know what else to say. If you hate butterscotch, make this. If you love butterscotch, make this. That’s all.
That melty part around the edges, my euphoria.
