Frosting

Yield 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 7 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 25 vanilla-flavored candy coating drops, melted
  • Paste food coloring

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl; stir well. Gradually add melted vanilla-flavored drops, stirring slowly to avoid air bubbles. Microwave at HIGH 45 seconds or until thin enough to spread; stir well. Divide frosting equally among four shallow bowls. Tint frosting to desired colors, using paste food coloring.
