Heather always has delicious recipes to share with us every month and her Hot Butterscotch Sauce looks just mouth-watering!

I’ll let Heather take it from here…


Yesterday, my family had a friendly little sundae competition.

It was a lot of fun, and we are all excited to see who the winner will be.

To get the competition started, I made the homemade sundae sauce toppings.

Chocolate and hot fudge always seem to be the favorites,but mine…

I have always loved butterscotch, and even though I make caramel all the time,I had never made my own.

The sundae competition was the perfect opportunity, and I am SO glad I did.

It is delicious, and so easy, that I know I will never be buying a jar again.
