Help! Need to thicken a frosting

p

I'm in the middle of making a caramel cake with a homemade caramel frosting and the frosting right now is way too runny.

What can I add to thicken up the frosting that is NOT sugar? There is already a cup of dark brown sugar and 2 cups of confectioners, but I hate overly sweet frostings so for this and future cakes, how can I cut down on the multiple cups of confectioners while still getting the right spreadable consistency?

Already in this frosting is:
butter
dark brown sugar
milk
vanilla yogurt
vanilla
confectioners sugar
in various proportions.
