Butterscotch Pudding

Butterscotch Pudding is an old-fashioned dessert that never went out of style. A homemade, luscious butterscotch pudding is topped with whipped cream and toffee bits for the perfect balance of creamy and crunchy. Each spoonful will take you back in time!

Ingredients Needed for Butterscotch Pudding

When you were a kid making your pudding choice, which one did you grab for? Chocolate and butterscotch were always at the top of my list! So, I wanted to re-create that childhood plastic cup of pudding. Licking the pull-back lid and all. To bring this back to life, all you need are a few simple ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sugar
  • Corn starch
  • Salt
  • Milk
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Butter
  • Vanilla
  • Whipped cream
  • Toffee bits

Ways to Serve

Pudding can seem like one of those desserts that isn’t very fancy, but that’s what I love about it! It’s just homemade goodness. 

The addition of whipped cream and toffee bits help take this pudding to the next level. You can never go wrong with a little toffee crunch! I love to use these little glasses to pour my pudding in to cool. They’re just the perfect serving size. Plus, it’s like a grab-and-go dessert!

Want to bump it up a notch? Make a pudding trifle! Layer cooled pudding with either pieces of blondies or brownies, whipped cream and toffee bits. Repeat until your glass or trifle bowl is full! How fun would that be?

Whether you’re making a fun, weeknight dessert to spark childhood memories, or a trifle for a crowd, this Butterscotch Pudding recipe is one to have up your sleeve!

Description

Butterscotch Pudding is an old-fashioned dessert that never went out of style. A homemade, luscious butterscotch pudding is topped with whipped cream and toffee bits for the perfect balance of creamy and crunchy. Each spoonful will take you back in time!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 oz butterscotch chips (about half a cup)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Toffee bits for topping

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized sauce pan, whisk together the sugar and corn starch until clump-free. Slowly whisk in the milk to work out and avoid any clumps. Whisk in the salt.
  2. Bring the pot to a very low simmer over low-medium heat, whisking occasionally to avoid clumps, about 5-8 minutes. The pudding base will have thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butterscotch chips, butter and vanilla until smooth. Pour into desired glasses or ramekins and refrigerate for 4 hours minimum and up to 24 hours in advance.
  4. Top with the whipped cream and toffee bits before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The butterscotch pudding can be made in advance. Top with the whipped cream and toffee bits right before serving.
  • Make this pudding into a trifle by layering cooled pudding with brownies (or blondies), whipped cream and toffee bits!
  • Prep Time: 4 hours
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
