unsweetened cocoa powder
1 (5 ounce) can
This familiar recipe is like the one used by my mother and grandmother. It is much better with butter instead of shortening and increase the cocoa to 2/3 c for a chocolate boost.
This is fine. You have to make sure you boil it fully and it thickens as it cools, so wait before you frost!
not that great very gritty from the sugar
