Chocolate Icing

Remember that chocolate cake? I made it for some friends last week and we decided that we needed some icing! Thanks, Hershey's!

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa (Don't tell, but I used Nestle!)
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Melt butter, stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk if needed. Stir in vanilla.

Frost cooled cake. If you frost a hot cake because everybody wants to eat it your icing will melt. But don't worry, it still tastes great. And even looks good when everything cools off.

And speaking of cake...Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother-in-law, Sharon! We love you! (And I'll make you cake this weekend.)
