Butterscotch morsels

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,
annhatch

  1. 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.

    1. I would LOVE to see butterscotch ice cream! Any such thing exist?

        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.

              Sounds like mucho work. Want to come over and make it for me! - I've never made ice cream b4 :(

          1. 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.

              1. 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 :
