Step 1: Make the Whipped Cream

Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla to a bowl and beat on high until soft peaks form. Drizzle in two tablespoons butterscotch, then beat until well combined. Set aside.

Tip

Why powdered sugar and not granulated? Because powdered sugar is a stabilizer, it keeps the cream whipped!
