So I thought I'd add this recipe to complement the one below. :) It's so yummy!!
1 Cup Butter
2 Cups buttermilk
2 Cups Sugar (I've always used white- but says you can use brown too... both would be yummy!)
2 Tbs light Karo Syrup
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
Use a Large Saucepan (it will foam and grow) and bring the first four ingredients to a boil while stirring constantly. Boil for 7 minutes (still stirring). Remove from heat and add soda and vanilla (will puff up again).
*Note- Probably will want to half if for a small family
*Note 2- if you let it boil a few minutes longer, it will be thicker. Great on ice cream too!
