Why I Love This Recipe

My mom would always make me the same cake for my birthday: a yellow box cake with homemade chocolate icing! Since I grew up on this delicious icing, I can hardly tolerate canned icing... I'm just so used to the real thing! :)

Ingredients You'll Need

1 stick of butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla


Melt butter, sugar, cocoa, and milk in a heavy pot. Stir continuously.

Boil of 3-4 minutes until it is at the soft ball stage.

Remove, and pour into a stainless steel bowl.

Add vanilla.

Beat til it thickens.

After mixing all ingredients, put it in the freezer for a few hours to thicken.
