One of the most popular recipes on my site is my favorite buttercream frosting recipe, and I often get emails asking whether it can be turned into a chocolate buttercream, caramel buttercream, cream cheese buttercream, etc. So I figured it’s time to start sharing some variations with you all, starting with this to die for caramel frosting recipe!
This delicious caramel frosting is very similar to the basic buttercream recipe, only it uses less butter and replaces it with the easy homemade caramel sauce I shared recently. The end result is a sinfully decadent caramel frosting that’s minus the numerous artificial flavorings and preservatives found in store bought frostings.
It’s the perfect way to top off your favorite cake or cupcakes!
The image above pairs this caramel frosting with my Fresh Honeycrisp Apple Cake, for a seasonal treat that’s worth waiting for! 1
