      3/4   c            Water
    1       tb           Light corn syrup

   Combine sugar, water, corn syrup, and  salt  in  small

   sugar is dissolved. Then boil, without  stirring,
   until mixture forms a very soft ball in cold water
   (232 degrees F.). Cool to lukewarm ( 110 degrees F. ).
   Melt chocolate in medium saucepan over boiling water.
   Add butter and vanilla. Remove from boiling water.
    Add syrup gradually, stirring constantly. Continue
   stirring until smooth and thickened. Place again over
   boiling water and stir until frostin0g is softened and
   of right consistency to spread. Remove from boiling
   water and spread on cake. If necessary, place over hot
   water to keep soft while spreading. Makes enough
   frosting to cover tops and sides of two 7 1/2x9-inch
   layers.
