Easy Penuche Icing

"This recipe comes from an old version of the Betty Crocker Cookbook that my mother got when she first married. It is wonderful addition to any chocolate cake. Enough for 2 - 8" or 9" layers or 1 - 13x9" oblong cake."

    Fantastic recipe- just like my grandmother's version. This tastes terrific over Chocolate Devil's Food cake with creamy vanilla ice cream!

    Exactly what I remember as a child. Yes it is very sweet, so try pairing it with a spice cake or something that is more savory than sweet.

    The icing finishes very nicely, but it is too sweet!
