    For the Salted Caramel

    The Rest

    • 12 tablespoons butter, room temperature (1 1/2 sticks)
    • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
    • 4 -5 cups powdered sugar, sifted
    • 3/4 cup salted caramel (recipe above)


    1. 1
      Combine the sugar, water and corn syrup in a large saucepan and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
    2. 2
      Cover the saucepan and let it cook over medium heat for 3 minutes. Do not open lid.
    3. 3
      After 3 minutes, remove the lid, increase the heat to medium and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Do not stir from this point on, but instead swirl the liquid around the pan so that the caramel doesn’t burn. Stirring forms sugar crystals and it will become grainey.
    5. 5
      Continue to cook until the caramel turns an even amber color then remove from the heat and let stand for about 30 seconds.
    6. 6
      Carefully pour the heavy cream into the mixture. The mixture will bubble up significantly and is very hot. Stir the mixture; add the butter, lemon juice and salt. Stir, again, until combined.
    7. 7
      Pour caramel into a heat-proof measuring cup. Stir occasionally and allow to cool until thickened and warm to the touch, about 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed until creamy.
    9. 9
      Add 4 cups sifted powdered sugar into the butter/cream cheese mixture and beat to combine.
    10. 10
      Add 3/4 cup of the prepared salted caramel and beat to combine.
    11. 11
      Add additional powdered sugar until the frosting is the sweetness and consistency desired.
