Mmmm butterscotch – that gooey topping you put on ice cream or the flavour of those sweets your Grandpa sneaks you when Mum’s not looking. It’s addictive right?
Like caramel (but made with brown sugar instead of white) you’re probably used to scoffing it as candy, sauce or in its solid form. But it’s time to widen your buttery horizons girl, because Montezuma’s has taken it to the next level by mixing it with CHOCOLATE.
And guess what? We’re gonna take it to the next next level by melting it. Need some inspo? These lot are snacking goals:
1. Your brekkie
Whether it’s porridge or pancakes, add some luxury to your morning meal. It’ll make the whole waking up thing a lot easier.
Forget Nutella, hummus, or avocado; butterscotch is *the* topping to pile on toast. Food bloggers everywhere will cry out in envy.
3. Chips from Maccy Ds
We know it works with milkshake, so why not upgrade? Mother, get us through that drive-through asap.
When your ‘rents try to trick you into healthy snacking, get one over on them by drizzling your almonds or cashews in butterscotch *wink face*.
5. Magical drinks
Harry Potter’s drink of choice, butterbeer, is made from butterscotch sauce, cream soda, cream, and a touch of melted butter. Yer a wizard.
Toffee popcorn is totally last year. Top popcorn with warm butterscotch and delve in; the stickier your fingers, the better.
Swirl some butterscotch into yoghurt for a healthy(ish) dessert. It’s the month of treats guys, plain yoghurt just isn’t the one.
Keeping up the healthy vibe think apples, pears, strawberries, bananas… the list is endless. Use as a dip, or drench the fruit like toffee apples.
They may be a good source of iron – a key mineral our bodies need when we’re menstruating – but if you’re not feeling the taste, drizzle butterscotch on brussel sprouts, broccoli and green beans, and watch your parents’ surprise as you devour your veg.
Dip shop-bought cookies into butterscotch and act like you’re Bake Off’s star baker. Santa won’t be able to get down that chimney quick enough.
11. A spoon
If nothing else takes your fancy, just lick it off a spoon. There are no rules at Christmas time.
