This very simple, scalable recipe contains just four ingredients. Make sure you use a mild molasses such as Grandma's brand or the candy will be overpoweringly molassesy. The finished butterscotch is a beautiful balance of butter, molasses and caramel with enough salt added to really make the flavor shine. If you think you don't like butterscotch, this recipe is sure to change your mind!
Grandma's Butterscotch Candy Tried this recipe and it turned out great! The trick is to get the temp to 300 and then add the butter. So many recipes have the butter adding at 240* and it turns clumpy and lumpy.
