COOKED COCOA ICING

Cooked icing may sound complicated but in reality it is very simple and quick and the taste is worth the little extra time!  This icing will remind you of fudge!

2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, stir the sugar and cocoa together until blended.  Add the butter, milk, and corn syrup to the sugar mixture.  Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Boil mixture 2 minutes.

Transfer hot icing into a medium-sized heat-resistant bowl and allow to cool for 5 minutes.  Add the vanilla extract.  Place the bowl into a large bowl of ice and beat about 5 minutes, or until of spreading consistency, using an electric mixer.

Use to frost cupcakes, using about a tablespoon per cupcake or frost a sheet cake or use as a filling and glaze on a layer cake.
