Yummy way to "top off" your favorite chocolate cake!

2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup quality shortening such as Crisco
2/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
3 squares (1-oz each) unsweetened chocolate
2 tsps vanilla extract

In a 2 1/2-quart saucepan mix the sugar, shortening, milk, salt, and chocolate together.  Heat to a roiling boil, stirring occasionally.  Boil 1 minute without stirring.

Remove pan from the heat and place in a large bowl of ice and water to chill.  Beat until frosting is of spreading consistency you desire.  Stir in the vanilla and frost cake.
