If you like butterscotch you will love this icing. It can be used on vanilla cake, chocolate cake, cupcakes or anything you prefer.
- 2⁄3 cup butterscotch chips
- 2 -3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup of cold butter (not margarine)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- Place butterscotch chips in a small saucepan with whipping cream and melt on low temperature. Stir constantly. Allow to cool for approximately 20 minutes. In mixing bowl cut up the butter into small pieces and add the butterscotch mixture. Blend together on high until mixed well and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix well. Add powdered sugar and blend until light and fluffy add more sugar if necessary.
I was hoping for a taste similar to butterscotch krimpet icing, but this wasn't it. The melted chips imparted an artifical flavor that I didn't care for. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't what I was hoping for.
Amazing frosting! Easy to make and delicious. I omitted the vanilla (because I ran out), and it still tasted great.
wonderful! Thank you for posting.
