Don’t be afraid to try your hand at this candy recipe—butterscotch isn’t complicated or hard to make at all! You only need a few basic ingredients and a reliable candy thermometer, and you’ll have homemade candy in about an hour and a half. Simply heat a mixture of sugar, water, and corn syrup to 270°F, stir in butter and honey, and cook a little longer till you reach the magic number for hard candy: 300°F. Spread it into a pan, let it cool a few minutes, and cut into squares.
