Grandma's Penuche Frosting

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Tarynne

This was my Grandmother's recipe. It was on a handwritten note inside her "school" cookbook. She made this often. It has been and will continue to be a family favorite. This is real good on chocolate cake.

Top Review by Kitchen Witch Steph

My grandmother loved this so much, the woman had quite a sweet tooth! I love to put it on chocolate cupcakes. I have found that it is something that a lot of people have not had. It's nice to do something unexpected when you bring food to group gatherings. Bring back an old classic. It will be well received.
