Butterscotch Sauce

Old fashioned butterscotch - so delicious.  A simple, yet wonderful combination of brown sugar, butter, and vanilla.  
If you're expecting a flavor like the little golden candies, you'll not find it here.  Those candies are flavored artificially whereas this taste is the authentic original.
This recipe is adapted from Simply Recipes.  It is a wonderfully rich sauce; great as a sweet dip, as a dessert topping, in butterbeer, or just right out of the pan!
One thing's for sure - you've got to try this.  Yum!

Butterscotch Sauce
Adapted from Simply Recipes

Butterscotch -
4 tbsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
3/4 cups heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

1.  Melt the butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat.

2.  Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and salt.  Cook, stirring often, until the sugar melts (about 5 minutes).

3.  Whisk in the 3/4 cups cream.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

4.  Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.  Once cool, stir in the vanilla.

5.  Serve!  To store: cover and chill.  To reliquify, place the amount you want to use in the microwave for about 10 seconds and then stir.  Repeat as necessary.
