Chocolate Cupcakes with Penuche Frosting

I have never had a good experience making penuche candy . . . but the frosting is super easy AND delish! It had a rich caramel like buttery flavor that makes this girl weak in the knees . . . so good!The frosting has found its way into our favorite finds file!!! I love to frost cupcakes and then sprinkle a little dark chocolate on top to round it out . . . delish!!!

Penuche Frosting

1 cup Butter or Margarine
2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
4-5 cups powdered sugar

1. In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and bring to a boil, stir constantly; reduce heat to low. Continue boiling and stirring for0 2 minutes. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling; remove from heat. Pour mixture into medium bowl; refrigerate 1 hour or until room temperature.
2. Beat powdered sugar into cooled brown sugar mixture with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add more milk 1 teaspoon at a time if needed. If filling is too soft, cover; return to refrigerator 15 minutes to firm up. Spread on cake or cupcakes. Enjoy!
