The earliest mentions of butterscotch go back to the mid 1800's, when an English newspaper printed the recipe for "Doncaster Butterscotch", as "one pound of butter, one pound of sugar and a quarter of a pound of treacle, boiled together". It was only a few years later when its popularity took off and was sold commercially throughout Yorkshire. Food historians have several theories regarding the name of this confectionery, but none are conclusive. One explanation is that it refers to being "cut or scored" for the word "scotch", as the confection must be cut into pieces, or "scotched", before hardening. Either way, it's delicious!
