I've been considering making butterscotch chip cookies with homemade butterscotch chips for a while now, but every time I look for recipes I find only butterscotch sauce recipes or recipes that use butterscotch chips.

So, assuming I've made butterscotch sauce, how would I go about properly hardening it to make chips or chunks out of it?

Welcome to the site thepocketwade. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the rules noted in our FAQ. Recipe requests are not appropriate here. – hobodave Oct 5 '10 at 18:14
welcome! Recipe requests are considered off-topic for this site (see the FAQ: An interesting question that would be on-topic would be along the lines of "how could I convert <homemade white chocolate chips/butterscotch sauce/something else> into butterscotch chips?" or "What methods could I use to harden butterscotch into a chocolate consistency?" – justkt Oct 5 '10 at 18:15
Fair enough, how's this edit work, or do I still need to change it? – thepocketwade Oct 5 '10 at 18:18
Thanks thepocketwade! – hobodave Oct 5 '10 at 18:38

This page suggests mixing the butterscotch sauce in to white chocolate, which makes sense to me. You need something that will be solid at room temperature.

This is what I would do as well. – justkt Oct 5 '10 at 19:05
