    Salted Caramel Frosting – the icing that in my humble opinion, should smother everything in fall including cookies, cakes and even cinnamon rolls! That sweet and salty flavor gets me every time.

    I adapted my thick, fluffy buttercream frosting for a little fall infused flavor that can truly be enjoyed year round. While I particularly crave it as temperatures drop, I can eat salted caramel any time, anywhere.

    You’ve seen this Salted Caramel Frosting recipe integrated into some of my favorite baked goods including sugar cookies and cakes, but I guess it’s been in hiding because I have received several questions about it, so it’s graduating to it’s very own recipe card.

    You can make my homemade salted caramel sauce to incorporate into this fluffy frosting, or purchase a jar at your grocery store, either way, this Salted Caramel Frosting will take your desserts to the next level!

    Life is too short for store bought frosting. Once you make this, you’ll never go back. It’s quick, easy and sooooo much better!

    How to Make Salted Caramel Frosting:

    • Whip softened butter until fluffy {your choice of salted or unsalted, but real butter only, please!}
    • Gradually beat in powdered sugar. PS, I never sift. This frosting isn’t fussy and doesn’t mind a bit! Start on the lowest setting and work your way to medium high.
    • Blend in salted caramel sauce.
    • Taste test – it’s the perk of the job! Check it for consistency. You can add more salted caramel or a touch of milk to thin, if needed.
