Butterscotch morsels

annhatch Mar 11, 2007 01:59 PM

I am avid butterscotch dessert maker, but I am getting tired of having to buy butterscotch morsels and candy.
I have found good recipes for makng butterscotch candy, but can't seem to find any recipes on how to make butterscotch morsels.
Does anyone have any recipes for it or where I could find a recipe.
Thank you,

    It seems to me that this is an industrially processed product and not just something that started out as a homemade product that a company learned how to manufacture.

        I've seen ice cream with a butterscotch swirl. But butterscotch ice cream... drool.

          take your favorite vanilla ice cream recipe. omit the vanilla bean. Reduce the sugar amount by 1/2-1 cup. Replace 2/3 of the reduced amount of sugar with brown sugar. Take your liquids, the brown sugar, some vanilla extract...maybe a bit of scotch for a kick & bring to a simmer. Take the other 1/3 amount of granulated sugar bring to a caramel stage. Add maybe 2-3 oz of unsalted butter to the caramel. Whisk into hot cream mixture. Temper into your yolks..etc etc. You have butterscotch ice cream.

            I would think you would have to add caremel/toffe to white chocolate to somehow get the butterscotch flavor but not sure how to make the morsels without having to pipe a million or so of them to harden.

              That's what I was thinking too, plus the cost of the white chocolate and extra brown sugar will be more than the butterscotch chips.

              Butterscotch syrup is so easy - why not start from there for flavor? Great on ice cream!

              I have made this version and it's delightful -


              And this is the butterscotch pudding recipe served at Mozza - that has taken LA by storm :
