Old Fashioned Caramel Frosting
This recipe has been in our family for a long time. It is really delicious on chocolate cake or vanilla cupcakes. It is the perfect topping for fall bake goods.
1 and 1/2 cup white sugar (i use coconut palm sugar)
Makes enough to frost a three layer cake, between layers and the exterior I usually sprinkle the top with nuts or mini chocolate chips. A cake with this frosting is especially good served with butter pecan ice cream.
If you want the cake to be caramel as well, I found this recipe in my Mom's cookbook, but I have to confess, I have never made it. I prefer this caramel frosting on chocolate cake!
