Brown sugar fudge frosting

Brown sugar fudge frosting

1 (packed) cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons butter

3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened

chocolate, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

Confectioners' sugar as desired

(I used 2 cups)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Makes about 2 cups, enough to frost one cake.

Place brown sugar, butter, chocolate, salt and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to incorporate. Boil exactly three minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in enough confectioners' sugar to achieve desired spreading consistency. Beat in vanilla.
