You can use this delicious Caramel Frosting to frost a sheet cake or brownies or to top off granola or apple cookies.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 2 cups frosting

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3-4 cups sifted powdered sugar

Preparation:

In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat until it starts to brown, about 3=4 minutes. Watch it carefully as the butter can burn quickly.

When butter is light golden brown, add brown sugar. Bring this mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil and stir for 1 minute until thickened. Remove from heat and add milk. Beat with wire whisk until smooth. Add vanilla and beat again. Then add enough powdered sugar until of desired spreading consistency; the frosting should be pourable. Pour frosting over cake and spread to cover. Let cool and serve. Frosts 13x9" pan.

To frost cookies, let frosting cool about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Frost cookies and let sit until frosting sets.
