"Janelle's Cake" Chocolate Frosting

I have the worst time finding this recipe card or my online file, so I'm stashing it here as well. You are welcome. This is the best chocolate frosting I know.

Ingredients (I double for a large cake)

5 Tbsp shortening
1/2 c cocoa
2 2/3c powdered sugar
1 1/3 tsp vanilla
6-7 Tbsp evaporated milk

Melt together shortening and cocoa. Add vanilla.

Stirn in about 1/3 of the powdered sugar at a time, with 1 Tbsp at a time of the evaporated milk, until desired consistency is reached.  (I thin it out with extra at the end to spread more easily.)
