Yield: 1 Servings
|1 can||(small) evaporated milk|
|1 \N||Stick butter|
|½ cup||Sugar (to brown)|
Mix 4 cups sugar, evaporated milk & butter in a heavy pan. Begin cooking on medium heat. In another heavy pan, brown ½ cup sugar over medium heat.
Let both come to a boil. (They must be boiling to mix.) Pour browned sugar slowly into boiling sugar mixture. Boil slowly to soft ball stage (232 degrees). When this mixture reaches soft ball stage, remove from heat & cool. (This can be achieved quickly by placing pan in small amount of cool water.) Add vanilla. Beat continually until smooth & will spread easily.
(If icing gets too hard, add a few drops milk & continue to beat until right consistency is reached.)
