what I made for Monday - Salted Caramel Cupcakes
I could eat this frosting by the spoonful. By itself. Don't judge.
Now it does take a little bit of work. First you'll have to go make my salted caramel sauce.
Really it's worth it. So go do that, then come back to this. The bonus is that you'll have more caramel than you need for this recipe and just think of the things you can do with the extra...eat it with a spoon, ice cream topping, the spoon thing, etc...
So once you have the sauce made...make the frosting. Are you ready?
Salted Caramel Frosting
3/4 cup salted butter (room temp)
1/4 cup salted caramel
3 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbls whipping cream
Using your mixer whip butter and caramel together, slowly add sugar until combined, add whipping cream one tablespoon at a time until frosting reaches good spreading texture.
Enjoy. By the spoonful. Or on a cupcake. Whatever.
If you're going to put it on cupcakes put it on ones using my favorite recipe.
