  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 2 C sifted confectioners' sugar I only used about 1 1/2 C
  • 2/3 C charoses Use my charoses recipe if you don't have your own go-to one.


  • In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter.
  • Add the brown sugar.
  • Bring to a boil and lower heat to medium low and continue to boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Add the milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Cool to lukewarm. Gradually add sifted confectioners' sugar. (I would highly recommend sifting this confectioners' sugar. It's such a pain to sift, but it ensures that the frosting will be extra smooth.)
  • Beat until thick enough to spread.
  • Mix in charoses.
  • Pour over cupcakes.


This recipe made twice as much frosting as needed for the cupcake recipe in this post.
