Homemade Caramel Frosting

Homemade Caramel Frosting

I have a new obsession: Homemade Caramel Frosting. It is like when I made my Homemade PB Frosting for the first time and thought, “Where have you been my entire life?!?!” Seriously, how have I gone all these years without having this frosting in my life? It is sooooo good. I could just sit down with the bowl of Caramel Frosting and eat it with a spoon. This however, would not be a good idea for my waistline. In fact, knowing how to make this so easily, is not a good thing for my waistline. I have made it three times already this week (lots of activities to take desserts to!) My Favorite Brownies with this frosting on top – OH.MY! It was soooo good! Thank goodness for activities to share these delicious creations with. Of course, if I give my kids the chance, they would probably gobble them up for me….

Seriously, never buy frosting in a can. It is soooo easy to make yourself! You just need butter, powdered sugar and a little milk. Having a mixer makes it much easier as well. All frostings are just variations on the butter, powdered sugar, and milk mixture (just add cream cheese, or PB, etc.). Easy, and soooo much better when whipped up at home – and it only takes a few minutes!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

 

Directions:

In a saucepan, heat the brown sugar, butter, and milk over low heat until brown sugar is dissolved. Increase the heat to medium. Do not stir. Cook for 5-6 minutes until bubbles form in the center of the pan or the mixture turns to amber. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Pour into mixer bowl and add the powdered sugar. Whip until combined, creamy, and to your desired consistency. If too tight, simply add a LITTLE milk – you can always add more milk, but you can’t take it away – so add it in slowly, and only if needed.

Top your favorite cake, brownies, or just eat it with a spoon 😉
