Chocolate or White Boiled Icing 1964

This was on the same page with the caramel icing that I got from my HS home economics teacher.

Just thought that others might like this recipe, too.

This should be enough to frost a pan of brownies or one layer of cake -- if you need more just double the recipe -- or 1/2 again more, for a little less more!! LOL
