Salted Caramel Frosting


When choosing between dessert flavors at a bakery, ice cream shop, etc., if there is salted caramel, there is a good chance that I will be giving that a try (unless there is mint oreo/cookies & cream - then there would be a tough decision to make!).  I just love salted caramel flavors.  I'm sure I've said it before that while I like sweets, I don't necessarily crave them (give me chips and cheese please!), but what I may not have said is that if it's a salty sweet - well, that's a whole new ballgame there!

Sadly, I haven't made many salted caramel flavors before... but I'm hoping that will change.  Starting with this amazing, yet simple, frosting.

Salted Caramel Frosting
Ingredients:
2 sticks butter, room temperature
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup salted caramel (homemade or store bought*)
3 1/2 - 4 cups powdered sugar
*If you can't find store bought Salted Caramel sauce simply add about 1 teaspoon of sea salt to the caramel)

Directions:
With an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese and butter until thoroughly blended.

Pour in Caramel and mix until combined.

Slowly mix in powdered sugar, beating for a few minutes until the frosting is light and fluffy.
