For one of my co-worker’s birthdays, she asked for something with caramel.  Did you know it’s impossible to find caramel icing at Kroger?  No caramel chips.  No caramel sauce.  Nada.

So, I googled.  And I found!

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c milk

Melt butter over low heat.  Add sugar and milk.  Boil until sugar dissolves.  Cool.

Beat in powdered sugar until desired consistency (about two cups).  I did it with a fork, because I still can’t remember to grab my beater from mom’s house, so I didn’t get quite the consistency I wanted – but it was freaking good!
