Ingredients

  • Salted Caramel Frosting

  • 1

    cup butter, room temperature

  • 8

    ounces cream cheese, room temperature

  • 3

    cups powdered sugar

  • 1

    cup salted caramel sauce (recipe below)

  • Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • ¼

    cup water

  • ½

    cup butter

  • ½

    cup heavy cream

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • ½

    teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Beat the butter and cream cheese together at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar and beat to combine. Add 1 cup of room temperature caramel sauce and beat again to combine. Slather this on top of anything and everything you'd like. Enjoy! Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and the water. Stir to combine and then cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves; about 4-5 minutes. There is no need to stir, simply swirl the pan over the burner occasionally as the sugar dissolves. Raise the heat to medium high and cook the sauce, swirling the pan occasionally, until it is amber colored; about 7-8 minutes. Add the butter, be prepared for it to bubble and sputter, lightly stir with a wooden spatula, do not scrape the sides of the pan or splash sauce up the sides of the pan. (This will cause crystallization, if you scrape the uncooked sugars back into the sauce.) Once the butter is melted, remove from the heat and add the vanilla, heavy cream and salt. It will bubble again, but will calm quickly. Stir to combine (again, not scraping sides of the pan) and then let cool before transferring to a jar and refrigerating for storage. Enjoy!
