Milk-free Chocolate Frosting

We were making brownies this weekend and didn't have enough powdered sugar. This was a yummy alternate recipe that doesn't call for any powdered sugar or milk (my daughter is lactose intolerant). It was surprisingly yummy with a fudgy taste and texture.

Chocolate Frosting

1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons corn starch
4 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Mix sugars, cornstarch, salt, and cocoa in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in the water. Heat over medium until it gets thick and starts to boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes. (Make sure you don't boil too long, or it will set like taffy.) Remove from heat and stir in oil and vanilla. Cool and spread on cooled cake.

Makes: enough frosting for 1 cake
Preparation time: 10 min.
