Cocoa Glaze

3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Boiling water

Combine melted butter, corn syrup, and cocoa in a small mixing bowl. Blend in vanilla and powdered sugar. Add boiling water, one tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition, until glaze is smooth and thin enough to pour over cooled cake.

This is a good glaze to use on a bundt cake. It will trickle down the sides of the cake and look nice. It's also great for cookies or pastries that you'll be transporting because the glaze dries hard when it cools.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
