Rum and butterscotch flavors blend nicely together. If you prefer not to use rum, however, add 2 teaspoons of rum extract. Or you can leave out the rum to make a delicious, nutty butterscotch dip-the choice is yours.
Leftover dip? No problem. It keeps well in the refrigerator. Warm it andpancakes or waffles. Top a slice of apple pie, pound cake or angel food cake with a scoop of ice cream, and pour warm butterscotch sauce over the top. In fact, this dip is so delicious, you might just want to make a batch to keep on hand.
