What does any one know about Butterscotch flavor? How is it different from caramel?
I once added some Scotch to caramel pudding and the results wern't so great. I acted like I knew what I was doing but all I got was "yuck" from my brother.
The flavor of butterscotch is a blend of butter and brown sugar.
Caramel is a mixture produced when granulated sugar has been cooked (caramelized) until it melts and becomes a thick, clear liquid that can range in color from golden to deep brown. A soft caramel is a candy made with a caramelized sugar, butter, and milk.
Basically the difference is the type of sugar used.
