1 cup sugar

Aunt Lena used the frosting recipe as the base for her famous chocolate and peanut butter fudge. She boiled the syrup for a minute and a half, to make sure it was firm enough to cut into squares when cool. Imagine the courage it takes to assume both batches of frosting/fudge will turn out right & delectable enough to layer one on top of the other for gifts. But Aunt Lena was a resolute woman and a precise cook.
