  • 1 cup Butter Unsalted, Room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Caramel sauce Preferably salted caramel sauce, Can also use Dulce de Leche instead
  • 3-4 cups Powdered sugar


  • In a large mixing bowl, add butter, caramel sauce and mix until fluffy.
  • Gradually, add powdered sugar (1/2 cup at a time) and mix until frosting is smooth and creamy. 
  • If frosting is too thick, mix in some milk or heavy cream. If frosting is too thin, mix in more powdered sugar. 
  • Cover bowl and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm it up a little more and make it easier to pipe. Enjoy!

  • Leftover icing can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week. It can also be frozen in a sealed container for up to 1 month and thawed in the fridge overnight and whipped to make fluffy again.
