I was hoping someone could help me find a recipe. I am looking for a chocolate frosting recipe that used to be on the back of the hersheys cocoa tins. My mom used to make this in the 80's. The frosting is thicker and hard once it's on the cake and cooled. She always used to call it "fudge" frosting. I know you boil it til it is very thick. I've looked at the hersheys tins over the last 5 yrs or so and thats not the same recipe. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My dad always loved that frosting and looked forward to it on his b-day cake and since my mom passed away 7 yrs ago he's been asking for it and I can't seem to find that recipe or even one that comes close. Thanks.
any of these?

It's probably too late to help "shaylatoby" for her dad's birthday cake, but I have a great recipe.
The problem I have w/cooked chocolate frosting recipes is, unless you use a candy thermometer, it's hard to get it just right. If you don't cook it long enough, it's thin; too long and it crystalizes. I'm a fudge frosting freak, and I have a recipe that is the easiest! And you can make it in the microwave (or double broiler):
EASIEST, QUICKEST, FUDGE FROSTING
1 cup chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet, not milk chocolate)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Put first three ingredients in microwaveable bowl and heat for two minutes; stir (they should be beginning to melt); microwave another minute, stir. Add another minute, if needed/stir, until the ingredients are all melted and smooth. This should take a maximum for 4-5 minutes (depending on the wattage of your microwave). Add vanilla. Cool a bit (it thickens as it sits, but don't wait too long to frost cake, as it might be hard to spread). THIS IS ALSO A GREAT FUDGE RECIPE! Make it exactly the same way, but increase the chocolate chips to three cups. Add chopped nuts, if you like, then pour into foil-lined cake pan and refrigerate until hardened; turn out of pan and peel off foil, place on plate or flat surface to cut into squares.
This may be the one your looking for. It was on the Hershey cocoa can in the 60's. It is my all time favorite. As the icing cools it gets hard.
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk (whole milk or evaporated milk) I use evaporated
2 tsp vanilla
Boil sugar, cocoa, butter and milk about 2 min. add vanilla. Beat until the gloss is gone. You can beat with a mixer or by hand. pour onto 9x13 sheet cake.
If you bake 8in round cake double the recipe.
Did you get to try any of these? If so, how did they turn out?
Thank you for this recipie, I used it tonight to make a frosting for a choc banana cake as requested by one of the men at work who turns 60 this week. I had never made a frosting before so am so pleased to have found this easy recipie - turned out amazingly!
Thank you again for taking time to post it - I will be adding it to my collection for future use (if I ever get over the sugar high )
