One-Minute Chocolate Icing

This is one of the best recipes that I got from my mother-in-law.  She was a chocoholic, as I am, so we got along great!

  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla

Melt butter in small saucepan.  Add sugar, cocoa and milk.  Mix together and bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute.  Take off heat and add vanilla.  Beat by hand until cool or until you get the consistency you want for your cake.  The longer you beat it, the harder it gets.  I don’t like it hard so I spread it on my cake when it is just barely spreadable.  Once you get it on the cake it starts to cool and you can spread it around more.
