Martha Washington's Fudge Frosting





1-1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tbsp. light corn syrup
1 dash salt
4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
4 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla


Combine sugar, water, corn syrup, and salt in small saucepan. Bring quickly to a boil, stirring only until sugar is dissolved. Then boil, without stirring, until mixture forms a very soft ball in cold water (232°F). Cool to lukewarm (110°F). Melt chocolate in medium saucepan over boiling water. Add butter and vanilla. Remove from boiling water. Add syrup gradually, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until smooth and thickened. Place again over boiling water and stir until frosting is softened and of right consistency to spread. Remove from boiling water and spread on cake. If necessary, place over hot water to keep soft while spreading.
