Wait! Butterscotch isn't a thing? I thought it was a color. Also a candy.
I can't copy and post any longer, but if you go to the Sherwin Williams Color Wall you can see the color. There are dozens of images of butterscotch candy on the net. But they are different colors. Generally brown or gold. Somebody desperate for something to do could mix up two or three batches, then braid them.
If you are now craving some butterscotch The Pioneer Woman has a recipe on line. She says you might want to add
a tiny splash of booze to the pudding.
The clues were all food related. lol According to what I read online, it's made with butter and brown sugar, unlike caramel, that's made with butter and granulated (white) sugar. Butterscoth candy, sauce, brownies, frosting.....
