Butterscotch with a Touch of Sea Salt
4 tbsp. Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Light Corn Syrup
¾ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
¼ tsp Sea Salt
2 tsp Vanilla Extract

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over low-medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir until well blended. Stir frequently until the mixture turns from grainy to hot and bubbly.
Watch closely. Just before you add the cream, it will begin to look more liquid. It is a slight change. At this point pour in the cream and whisk until smooth.

Pour mixture into a stainless steel or glass bowl and cool to room temperature.

When cool, stir in vanilla and sea salt.

Store in a glass jar and refrigerate. Butterscotch will thicken as it cools.

To reheat, place jar in microwave or in a small sauce pan of warm water until desired consistency is reached.
