This is a version of butterscotch that can be made in the microwave!

Make sure you don’t double the recipe, you can do it more than once instead! INGREDIENTS

  • 1 dl (0,4 cups) golden syrup (in sweden we use ljus sirap, it is like Lloyd’s golden syrup, or treacle)
  • 1 dl (0,4 cups) heavy cream
  • 1 dl (0,4 cups) sugar
  • 1 spoon full of butter


  1. Add all ingredients except the butter into a glass bowl with high edges. Stir until it is all mixed!
  2. Put it into the microwave on a high temperature for three minutes. After three minutes you open and stir with a spoon, and then add three more minutes..
  3. Then stir it all again, and try how hard the toffee is.  You can pour some toffee with a spoon into a glass with cold water to see how much it hardens.
  4. Continue with one more minute in the microwave if needed, and then take out and try again in the water. It takes 7,5 minute in my microwave.
  5. When done, add the butter and stir.
  6. Pour the mixture into little waxed paper cups.  The easiest way to do this is to use a spoon. 
  7. Let them cool down before you eat them! 
  8. You can keep them in a box. And good luck not eating all of them immediately!
