Butterscotch Cupcakes | Butterless Butterscotch Muffins

Today I am with an easy cupcake where I have used butterscotch chips. Whenever I go grocery shopping I buy many new products aiming to try new recipes but it never happen and many times the products near the expiry date I have to trash it out with heavy heart.Yesterday I trashed out my fridge with products that I never used, I feel guilty for wasting money.So I have decided not to buy any new products hereafter.

This cupcake was born when I saw some of the leftovers butterscotch chips  which I bought months backs.Since I don't want to waste it  I made this easy recipe.
