Great Grandmother's Chocolate Frosting

Some recipes never go out of style! It's truly amazing how much you can delight a child with some great chocolate frosting: spread it on graham crackers or Nilla wafers, share a spoonful you need an excuse?

Great Grandmother's Chocolate Frosting

  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 stick butter (8 ounces), softened
  • 1 box powdered sugar (about 4 cups), sifted
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • pinch salt
Melt chocolate in double boiler. Thoroughly cream softened butter and gradually add powdered sugar. Add melted chocolate. Mix well. Add salt and add milk gradually (it may not take the entire 1/2 cup). Add vanilla and spread on cake or cupcakes.

~Frosts about 4 dozen cupcakes or one cake
