Att: Deb or Di.This recipe was a real favorite growing up. Us kids designed a real cute frame and have it still hanging in our Mom's kitchen.




2 cups sugar

½ cup fat-free milk

6 T. baking cocoa

½ tsp. vanilla extract


In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, cocoa, and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Enjoy, Deb
