3 c Sugar
1 1/2 c Milk
1 tb Butter
1 ts Vanilla
Mix sugar and cocoa until a medium brown color. Stir in milk and boil
until softball stage in cold water. Remove from heat, add butter and
vanilla. Beat until it starts to cool very slightly and put on bottom
layer. Place top layer on this and continue to beat icing until starts to
get slightly thick. Pour over top layer and spread over top and sides. If
you wait too long, you will have a glob of candy on top of your cake, but
if you pour it too soon, it runs everywhere. Kind of hard to describe over
cyberspace how to find a happy medium.
It is really easy but can be tricky also.
