  1. Bring butter, cocoa, salt, and milk to a boil in a small saucepan. It may appear curdled- that's fine. While mixture is boiling, measure 3½ cups of the powdered sugar into a mixing bowl. Pour boiling chocolate mixture over powdered sugar. Beat till smooth and add vanilla. Add more powdered sugar if needed. Pour over cake after it has cooled for about 5 minutes.
