Salted Vanilla Caramel Icing
Sweet and salty snacks have always been a part of American pop culture and have taken on quite a style and sophistication in the last few years. Sea salt is found in chocolate, Hawaiian pink salt on handmade caramels, even gourmet potato chips in exotic flavors.
This icing is super simple to put together using melted vanilla caramel instead of cooking sugar from scratch. Beating in butter and sugar creates a fluffy cloud to top cupcakes or brownies; the first bite of salty sweetness hits the spot. It's hard to resist "just one more bite"!
