Rich and creamy, this easy to make Butterscotch Coffee Creamer will have you making exquisite coffee drinks to sip from your favorite mug right in your own kitchen! There’s nothing better!
If you are a big coffee fan like I am, then making your own coffee drinks whenever you want is like wrapping your hands around a steaming mug of Heaven … in the morning, in the afternoon, while you read your favorite book, watch your favorite show… The world is in our cup because there is no such thing as too much coffee!
What You Need To Make This Easy Butterscotch Coffee Creamer
- half & half
- brown sugar
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.
There is not enough time for all of the coffee sipping and porch time I’d like to spend with you. However, fabulous and easy coffee creamers like this simple butterscotch recipe make the most of the time we do get to spend with family and friends.
Butterscotch Coffee Creamer

This sounds delicious! Have you tried to make a chocolate coconut almond creamer?
Julie, I haven’t, but it sounds wonderful!
I thought that maybe you had an idea for that! Sounds like an Almond Joy creamer to me!!
Looks like I need to look into coming up with one!!
This was delicious, however when I put it in the fridge the butter solidified and I can’t blend it or shake it to combine. Help?
Hi, Julie! Sounds like you may have to warm it a little and then remix. When initially preparing it on the stove top, try cooking it a little longer to make sure this doesn’t happen! I am so glad you made it and enjoyed it!
Has anyone tried substituting evaporated milk (not condensed) for the half-and-half? Trying to cut back calories a bit.
Hi, Louise! I haven’t tried that, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!
This looks so good! What a great way to make your cup of coffee more fun or make a gift for a friend!
Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
Thanks so much, Suzanne! It does keep for a week or so. You may have to reheat to mix the butter back in, but it should be delicious for a good number of cups of coffee!
