My Aunt Phyllis’s Chocolate Icing

1 cup sugar
2 tbsp cocoa  (you can use 1 tbsp of dark chocolate cocoa and one of regular or 2 tbsp of dark chocolate cocoa)
1/3 cup milk
¼ cup Crisco
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt

Mix ingredients and bring to boil in medium sized pan. Boil for one minute (I bowl it for several minutes). Beat with a fork as it cools. Ad vanilla. Add powdered sugar until the icing gains some thickness, You can pur it right onto a cake baked in a 13 x 9 pan and smooth in quickly to edges.  You may also add a little more powdered sugar and ice a cooled two layer cake, putting icing in between the layers.  This recipe can be doubled for thick icing or a large cake.  It can even be poured into a buttered pan and used as fudge! Delicious!
