Let's Talk

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between caramel and butterscotch?  Well, I never knew the answer until I did some research.

The difference has to do with the sugar.  Caramel is made using granulated sugar (somtimes it's cooked along with milk and or/cream, butter and sometimes vanilla).  Whereas, butterscotch is made with brown sugar and has more butter than caramel.

And for those you may be wondering where toffee fits in. . . here is your answer.  Toffee is actually butterscotch but it is cooked to the hard crack stage.
