My all time favorite cake frosting is a homemade caramel one that my grandma and mom have topped angel food cakes with my entire life. It makes the kitchen smell so caramel-y wonderful! And, the taste...oh, the taste compares to nothing else.
The next best thing to having it cover my all time favorite cake, is to make graham cracker cookies with the leftover frosting. A.maz.ing!
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp. milk
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in brown sugar.
Cook over low heat for 2 minutes.
Add milk; bring to a full boil. Remove from heat.
Cool to lukewarm without stirring. Add powdered sugar; beat well until spreadable consistency reached. Thin with more milk if necessary.
