Mary Lou Ivy


My family loves, loves, loves this frosting. I make a yellow cake and top it with this yummy frosting. I hope your family and friends enjoy it too! I will post a picture the next time I make it.

pinch tips: How to Fold Ingredients



9 inch 3 layer cake


25 Min


15 Min


Stove Top


1/2 c
butter or margarine
squares semisweet chocolate
1/2 c
evaporated milk
2 c
white sugar
1 Tbsp
white karo syrup
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

Place all ingredients except for vanilla in a med saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, boil for 2 1/2 minutes stirring as it boils. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool in pan for 10-15 minutes. Beat with wooden spoon until spreading consistency. If it becomes too thick, add small amount of the evaporated milk. Marylou's notes: You can use a mixer but it does firm up pretty quick. If you added pecans to this and spread it in a buttered pan, it becomes fudge!
