DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy medium saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa, and salt, and stir or whisk to mix everything well.
  • Add the butter and place over medium heat, stirring to melt the butter and mix everything together into a smooth, brown sauce.
  • Add the milk, stir well, and bring the frosting to a boil, stirring often and adjust the heat to maintain an active but gentle boil, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • When the frosting begins to thicken, remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla and set it aside to cool for about 20 minutes.
  • Beat the frosting just until it thickens and looks shiny, and then spread it over the cake or the layers you want to ice.
