Chocolate Fudge Icing
Minus 1 TBSP rich milk
Remove from heat and stir in,
This icing recipe is a candy recipe with milk added to make it into frosting.
Bring to a boil in a large heavy pan: Bring t a boil and cook covered 2-3 minutes until the steam washes down from the sides of the pan any crystals which may have formed. Uncover, redice heat and cook without stirring to soft-ball stage, 238 degrees. When nearing 238, there is a fine overall bubbling with, simultaneously, a coarser patter, as though the fine bubbled areas were being pulled down for quilting into the coarser ones. Remove from heat without jostling or stirring.
Cool the candy to 110. You may hasten this process by placing the hot pan in a larger pan of cold water until the bottom of the pan has cooled. Add: 2 4 TBSP butter Beat fudge partially. Add: 1 tsp vanilla Then beat until it begins to lose its sheen. At this point the drip from the spoon, when you flip it over, holds its shape against the bottom of the spoon. Quickly add: 1/2 1 c. broken nut meats Pour the fudge into a buttered pan. Cut into squares before it hardens. To use fudge for centers, beat until thick, knead and shape.
