What You Need To Make This Easy Butterscotch Coffee Creamer

  • half & half
  • butter
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla
  • salt

Butter and cream in a sauce pan with a whisk.Unlike a lot of homemade creamers that I make, this butterscotch coffee creamer starts stove top in a sauce pan.  But don’t worry.  That doesn’t mean it takes a long time to make.  About the time it takes to melt butter is all you will spend on this gem.

As soon as the cream warms, the butter melts and all the brown sugar is incorporated, you’re ready to serve this dreamy coffee creamer up.  Serving it warm is actually a plus because it won’t cool down your coffee as you pour it in.  It’s just adds a wonderful, fabulous silkiness to your drink like you’ve never experienced before.

On the flip side, any leftover butterscotch creamer should be stored in the fridge and can be served again cold.  Just make sure you stir it a little before serving to reincorporate any fats that have wanted to separate.

Another fantastic serving suggestion (hot or cold) is to give this coffee creamer a whirl in the blender or with your emulsifier.  It froths up like nobody’s business, quick and easy, adding great body and a deliciously light foam to your cup.
