need a particular chocolate frosting recipe

Years ago, I bought sets of recipe cards that included one for Best Chocolate Cake. It was supposed to appeal especially to children.

Anyway, I remember the frosting for it included a jar of hot fudge sauce. It was scrumptious!

Does this ring a bell with anyone? Thanks.

1. Cream together the butter or margarine with the shortening.

2. Sift the cocoa with the confectioners' sugar and add to the creamed mixture. Mix together adding 1 tablespoon at a time of milk to keep mixture smooth. Don't add more than 1/4 cup of milk.

That sounds absolutely yummy!

I got a smile at the idea of a recipe company needing to add that children would like chocolate frosting.
