Expert Tips

  • To save time, 1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy dulce de leche (caramel) frosting can be substituted for the caramel frosting in this recipe.
  • In this recipe, butter is necessary to obtain the browned butter flavor in the icing. Margarine will not provide the same flavor or color and will take longer to brown.
