Helpful tips to prevent the butter from separating: Make sure the butter is room temperature, if not warm it up in the microwave. Start heating the butter and brown sugar on low and gradually go up to medium. Don’t forget to add a little salt to the butter and brown sugar. The good thing is that even if it separates, it will still work.
