I am looking for a creamy caramel icing/filling. The old fashioned crusts, and I really want almost a butter cream consistency. Any ideas?

Funny you should asked this question. I just got a request today for a caramel icing and I don't have one in my recipe collection.

Here's an idea...I've noticed that Kraft is now packaging caramel pieces...in the aisle with the chocolate chips in the same kind of bag. What about adding about 1 cup of the melted caramel pieces to regular buttercream? I would imagine that it would require adding a little more milk to the buttercream but I'm thinking it may work. I may give it a try tomorrow and see.

If you do try this I'd add only about a teaspoon of milk to the icing at a time to be careful not to add too much liquid.

I make a caramel SMBC. Ghirardelli makes a creamy carmel sauce that I add to the icing once I have added all the butter. I does tint the icing a bit but it is yummy!!!!

I did it once with just the carmel topping for icecream (not the crusting kind) it was good, but I had to add alot. icon_smile.gif

If you used a crusting buttercream...did it still crust? I'm wanting to add caramel but still have an icing that will crust.
