I enjoy a good caramel sauce and have had plenty of butterscotch lollies in my life, so this sounded like a great combination, especially as a Barker's of Geraldine product. I like that the bottle comes with ideas drawn on it for ways to use this sauce, it is always handy to have an idea or two when trying something out. I opened it up and it smelled delicious, I immediately needed to have a small taste and wasn't dissapointed. I brought this out when my friend was over and we both poured some over our French vanilla cheesecake, took a nice big bite and absolutely loved it.
I was feeling a bit peckish and wanted something sweet to eat, so ransacked my kitchen cupboards and pulled out some Farrah's snack wraps, margarine and In-Salt salted chocolate. I spread margarine on the wrap, a hearty helping of the chocolate salt and then rolled them up nice and tight. After I cut them into smaller pieces, put them in an oven tray and then drizzled the caramel sauce over them before popping them in the oven for a few minutes. My girls thought it was delicious and my nine year old happily ate the extra sticky mess left in the tray whilst my eight year old asked me to make them more.
Ice-cream, muffins, pancakes... This has so many good uses and as three out of the four of us like it, I can see us getting this again.
Baker's products are always a hit in my family, so much so that 90% of the sauces and spreads in our fridge are all by Barker's, we have so much faith in the brand knowing that it will always likely impress us all that we are always quick to pick up a new Barker's product up off the shelves whenever we see one! When I saw that Barker's had released a new range of dessert sauces I was particularly happy, I often love to make desserts and sweet treats, but finding a nice sauce to use as a topping (or filling) is not always easy, so when I was given the Butterscotch Caramel Sauce to review I was particularly happy.
Upon receiving the bottle I was impressed by the deep caramel colour of the sauce that I could see through the tall glass bottle and also by the consistency of the sauce, it certainly wasn't runny and watered down, but it wasn't to thick either just the right consistency to make pouring easy. This Caramel sauce brought back so many childhood memories of mine as growing up I would always visit my Nana's in the school holidays where she would always have a bottle of Caramel Sauce on hand for our ice cream after dinner, and a tray of Caramel slice in the fridge, some of the sauces were definitely better than others so I was looking forward to seeing how this one compared.
The label itself gives several different ideas for trying the sauce out on such as on a Butterscotch date pudding, as an ice cream drizzle, over pancakes or even in a milkshake, all of there ideas sounded great but I decided instead to first off try mine drizzled through a chocolate brownie before baking. After filling my baking tray up with the chocolate brownie batter I drizzled some of the Butterscotch Caramel Sauce lightly through the top of the batter, as the brownie cooked the sauce bubbled away but I was pleased to see that it didn't seep into the mixture, instead it stayed beautifully on the surface and gave a lovely caramel bite to each mouthful.
Next, off I decided to make some banana splits, I placed some halved bananas into a long dish and then topped these with some scoops of Hokey Pokey ice cream, followed by some bite-sized Squiggle Top biscuits, some chopped up Easter Eggs and then lastly the Butterscotch Caramel Sauce, a very generous amount! This tasted A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and by far was one of the best Caramel sauces I've ever tried.
As far as Caramel sauces go this one is by far worth trying, it has a real hint of Butterscotch to it which makes a nice change from your ordinary Caramel sauce, my whole family loved it. A great sauce at a great price which I will be buying again soon as my bottle is almost all gone!
