This chocolate frosting is reminiscent of my childhood. My mom and grandma both made it many times! It has such a rich chocolate taste and it's so thick and fudgy.
I also included an awesome chocolate cake recipe at the bottom. It's fantastic!
Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Frosting
3/4 C. Evaporated Milk
2 C. Granulated Sugar
1/2 C. Butter
Dash of Salt
3/4 C. Milk Chocolate chips
1 Tsp. Vanilla
Instructions: Put the evaporated milk, sugar, butter, and salt in a saucepan on medium high heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add chocolate chips and vanilla. Spread over cooled cake and enjoy!
I failed to get a picture of the chocolate chips melted completely in the frosting....but the photo belows shows what it looked like when I took the frosting off of the heat and added the vanilla and chocolate chips.

This chocolate cake is also an old recipe we found in our family cookbook. It has a great taste and texture! A recipe definitely worth saving!
