Don't have any flavored creamer in the house but don't want to run to the store before you've had your morning cup of coffee? Try this quick and easy to make Butterscotch Creamer at home!
I'm someone who needs to have a cup of coffee in the morning to get going. I cannot drink it black and usually use some type of flavored creamer in it. When I don't have creamer I can use milk and a touch of sugar in a pinch but I like the flavor of creamer in my coffee.
One of my problems is that sometimes I forget to buy it on my grocery shopping day or I run out at night and don't have time to buy it in the morning. The good news is that with just a few ingredients it's fairly easy to make your own creamer at home.
All you need is butter, brown sugar, a little salt, and some type of milk or cream. In this recipe I use sweetened condensed milk because it's what I had in the house but you can use your judgement with what you want to use.
To make the creamer you simply boil the butter and brown sugar then add in the milk and simmer. Remove from heat and add in a pinch of salt. It's that easy! This recipe makes enough to fill a half pint jar or one cup.
I love the flavor of this butterscotch creamer because it's not a flavor you can find. I often buy caramel but there is something so yummy about salted butterscotch in my coffee. Try it, I'm sure you'll like it!
Pro Tips & Substitutions:
- If you don't have sweetened condensed milk you can increase the brown sugar to ½ cup and simply use 1 cup of evaporated milk, heavy cream, or half and half.
