Prep time 10 mins
Yield Makes about 2 1/4 cups
Try this creamy, butterscotch-caramel frosting on your favorite cake recipe. If you love lots of frosting, (or just want to lick the bowl) double the recipe. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch-caramel topping
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16-oz.) package powdered sugar
  • 1 to 3 Tbsp. milk

How to Make It

  1. Beat first 4 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.

  2. Gradually add powdered sugar alternately with 1 Tbsp. milk, beating at low speed until blended and smooth after each addition. Beat in up to 2 Tbsp. additional milk for desired consistency.
