Milk Chocolate Caramel Frosting

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Chocolate

 Ingredients List

  • 18 oz milk chocolate chips (about 3 cups)
  • 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2¼ cups heavy cream
  • 1½ sticks room temperature unsalted butter, cut into cubes


1. Pour your chocolate chips into a large bowl and set aside.
2. In a medium sauce pan combine water and granulated sugar on medium heat. Bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes until it turns an amber color.
3. When mixture reaches amber color turn heat down to medium low and slowly pour in your heavy cream. Stir continuously until it incorporated and smooth.
4. Pour caramel mixture over your chocolate in the bowl.
5. Stir until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
6. Place bowl in refrigerator for an hour, until chocolate is cooled. I stirred mine a few times within the hour, to help it cool evenly.
7. When chocolate is cooled, remove from fridge and mix with a hand mixer until the chocolate becomes a spreadable consistency. Don't over-mix at this point.
8. Add in you butter and beat until frosting is smooth. Place frosting back in refrigerator at least another hour, or overnight.
9. Let frosting come back to room temperature when ready to frost cake.
