Been making this for years! Doesn't need to form a ball, just cook to a boil (stirring constantly) and it will be a thick paste, like pudding. Cool partially, stirring every couple of minutes, then press a sheet of plastic wrap on the surface(to prevent a skin from forming) and refrigerate. I make the paste while my cake is baking, so it has ample time to cool. Beat the sugar & butter very well, add the paste and beat. White, granulated sugar is correct: I have made this many times since I was a kid. Always delicious, something different, not too sweet, great for a kids birthday when they are already overdosed on sugary treats. I make it whenever I find myself out of confectioners' sugar, also. I love it partially because it is nostalgic for me....
