Homemade Chocolate Frosting

Another easy family recipe that goes great on my easy Homemade Chocolate Cake. Filled with ingredients you have on hand, this frosting recipe is another way to create something from scratch, without taking forever. It certainly is a nice change from premade, chemical filled, store bought frostings!

2 1/2 c sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp white corn syrup
8 tbsp shortening or oil
2/3 c. milk (can use canned or regular)
pinch of salt

Put all ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil for a full minute. Remove from heat and let cool before icing your cake. Can keep in the fridge up to 2 weeks.
