Caramel Frosting Recipe

Posted by  ·  September 18, 2014  ·  Last Updated: April 10, 2019

If you love caramel this is the perfect frosting recipe for you! It is fabulous for cakes and cupcakes! Let me warn you… it is hard to stop eating! The secret ingredient that makes this frosting so rich and decadent is a can of dulce de leche. Dulce de leche is sweetened condensed milk that has been cooked into a  smooth creamy caramel. Believe me, dulce de leche is good by the spoonful straight from the can….. but try to stop yourself so you can make this dreamy frosting!

    Can you use regular caramel topping in case you can't find the dulce del leche? Never heard of this before. Thanks :)
