If you are looking for something a little different to top your cupcakes than traditional buttercream, this Penuche Frosting is just the ticket, especially if you like brown sugar.
Penuche fudge is made with brown sugar and milk and cooked to caramel-like delciousness. Those of us in See’s Candy territory know it as the filling inside the Bordeaux candies.
This frosting has the same decadent taste in a spreadable format. Just melt some butter and brown sugar, let it cool add a splash of milk then whip in some powdered sugar. Easy, peasy and delicious.
I have made it a few times and paired it with chocolate (brownies and the cake in the photos), but it would also be delicious with a spice, apple or carrot cake, or cookies or whoopie pies or straight off the spoon… not that YOU would do that.
