Sheath Cake Icing by TempletonClan

Put pecans in icing while hot; gives it a good flavor.. or spread the pecan on top. We love it with ice cream!

Put butter, cocoa and milk in saucepan, melt & bring to boil.

Remove from heat and add powered sugar, vanilla and pecans. Beat well.

Pour over hot cake.
