As promised! Almost impossible to screw up penuche frosting. I have done everything wrong to this recipe that you can do and it comes out. Yay!
1/2 c. butter (or Earth Balance)
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. dark brown sugar
1/4 c. cream (or coconut milk)
pinch of salt
2 t. vanilla
2 c. powdered sugar
Melt your butter, then stir in brown sugars and bring to a boil over med. heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring all the while.
Stir in cream and salt and bring back to a boil, still stirring. Then remove the pan from the heat and let cool to lukewarm. Now add vanilla.
Pop your goo in the mixer and slowly add your confectioners sugar. Try not to overbeat. If you get too thick, thin with hot water. If it's too thin, more sugar.
Ta Da. :D
