Got this from McCall's (red) Cook Book from 1963, page 157, called Chocolate Frosting. It's now my all purpose chocolate frosting. This is a great make ahead frosting and stores well in your fridge sealed in a plastic container for weeks. Even thought my Hot Milk Cake is great without frosting, this is my husband's favorite on it.
