  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cups evaporated milk


  • Over low heat melt butter thoroughly. Add sugar, milk, and cocoa. (You can also add a little vanilla--1 tsp. or so) Whisking briskly, bring to a boil--you can bring the temperature up to low/medium. Boil for 5 minutes, whisking constantly--it will make sure all the little lumps are removed!!. Remove from stove, then serve warm or cold. (It will thicken even more as it cools.)
    Keep refrigerated...will last 1-2 weeks.  
    TIP:  This recipe is great for doubling, tripling...I've been quintupled it! One batch makes 2 half pint jars.
