Brown Sugar Frosting

October 28, 2014
Oh yum, this is a vanilla infused, buttery brown sugar frosting that clings to the spoon.

This is a frosting that makes the simplest of cakes turn from ordinary to extraordinary.

The fact that it is so easy and no fail makes this even more of a frosting that you and I

will want to keep and use during the Holidays, perfect on sugar cookies too.

I made this frosting and then dipped my Rolo Chocolate filled German Chocolate cupcakes into

this sort of forget the cake and eat the frosting out of the bowl recipe.

Seriously, do not make this frosting when you are hungry because you can easily eat it

by heaping spoonfuls.

I am getting a little off track here, but if you like a little ooey gooey, in the center of your

cupcake you might want to give this a little try.

Just tuck a chocolate caramel Rolo in the center of your cupcake batter just before baking.

A little added bit of goodness, never ever hurt anyone.

I was preparing dinner at the same time I was baking these and this little guy with

the big smile was eating some frosting out of the bowl,

Time slipped away and I over baked the first dozen cupcakes, which seemed not to hurt the cupcakes

 as much as it did the Rolo chocolate inside.

So, these little treasures need to be watched- depending on how full you fill them.

2/3 cup full is the rule of thumb.

Bake time 18-22 minutes, I'd start watching them at 15.

All of my recipes are prepared with love in my kitchen, so they are tested by some of the

finest taste buds around.

I hope you always feel free to print any of the recipes I share with you and make them 

with love for your family too.

    Your brown sugar frosting on those Rollo vanilla cupcakes looks delicious! I will give this a go, as I do love the aroma that brown sugar gives to baked goods, and your first pic is too tempting not to, as your little helper proves!
