Ingredients15 m servings 165 cals
- Heat butter, stirring constantly, in a saucepan over medium-low heat until it browns and becomes very aromatic, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk confectioners' sugar into butter until dissolved and remove saucepan from heat; stir in milk and vanilla extract.
- Beat butter mixture using an electric mixer until frosting is smooth; add more milk if frosting is too thick.
- Cook's Note:
- Make sure to stir butter continuously while heating and be very careful to not burn the butter - if you do, start over again with new butter.
- If you are not using the frosting immediately, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate so it does not dry out.

This is delicious frosting, but the recipe is not enough to frost a whole cake, only a pan of brownies maybe. Double the recipe if you want to do a whole cake.
This was good and really easy to make. I used a bit more butter (about 1/3 cup) and 1/4 cup milk. It was really sweet to taste by itself but worked really well on the butter pecan cake I made.
