Kip's Fudge Frosting

Adapted--or one might say stolen--from my sister, Katie's, fudge frosting

Enough for a 2-layer cake, and maybe a 3

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cost: $2.20

butter: .45, cocoa: .27, milk: .08, sugar: 1.40

3/4 C (1 1/2 sticks) butter, somewhat melted (halfway melted, in Kip's words)

1/2 C cocoa

1/3-1/2 C milk

1 tsp vanilla

dash salt

Nearly 2 lb powdered sugar (probably 2 C shy of 2 lb--start with less; you can always add more if it's too runny or thin)

Mix butter, cocoa, and 1/3 C milk. Add other ingredients and beat well. If it's too stiff, add more milk.
