It is finally grilling season in Alaska and that means food, friends and family. Our crowd loves ice cream and I've been playing around with a variety of ice cream toppings. This quick and easy one is a big favorite right now, but I'm working on a pineapple topping as well.
EASY BUTTERSCOTCH ICE CREAM TOPPING
¼ cup butter
1¼ cups light brown sugar (packed)
16 large marshmallows
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
dash of salt
1 cup of evaporated (canned) milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the sugar, marshmallows, corn syrup and salt.
Stirring constantly, keep your heat very low until everything is melted and smooth then raise the heat to a medium low setting. Bring to a gentle boil (keep stirring) and boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat and cool for five minutes. Stir in evaporated milk and extracts, mix until everything is very smooth.
Store in fridge (keeps for a couple weeks if it lasts that long). Tastes great cold or warm.
