Rich and dark and very creamy in texture, lovely butterscotch flavour and my fiance loves it! I add a little extra butter at the end which helps the smoothness and the flavour. I've been adding it to thick custard over the holidays to make a yummy filling for cupcakes and tarts and eclaires! I'm not a huge butterscotch fan, but this won me over totally.

I wouldn't even rate this as 1 star. No taste, odd texture. Everyone picked it out of the center and threw it away. This was for our Easter cake. I would suggest deleting it completely!

I didn't like the taste. You could actually taste the cornstarch. Some that had the cake actually liked it though.
