I have a question about the recipe "Butterscotch Sauce" from dashandbella. Can you please explain how butterscotch sauce is different caramel sauce?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Properly speaking, caramel is a sauce made from sugar heated up until it liquifies and turns amber-brown. When you add dairy (typically some combination of butter and cream, as in the recipe you reference), it becomes butterscotch. Many products (mis-)labeled "caramel" however (candies, syrup, etc.) contain dairy as well, which is why some people think caramel and butterscotch are the same thing.
