    In 1-quart saucepan, heat whipping cream, 1/3 cup butter and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar to boiling over medium heat, stirring frequently. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Using whisk, stir in powdered sugar and the vanilla until smooth.

Expert Tips

  • To prevent frosting from cracking, be sure to cut bars 30 to 45 minutes after frosting. Frosting will be slightly warm but set.
