- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup evaporated milk
- Optional: 2 tablespoons dark rum
- 3 ounces milk chocolate, chopped in small pieces

- Combine brown sugar, salt, vanilla extract, butter, milk, and rum in a saucepan. Stir to a boil and remove from heat. Whisk in milk chocolate and allow to cool at room temperature.
- Add powdered sugar in 1/2 cup amounts stirring mixture smooth between additions. If batter becomes too firm, transfer on a board dusted with powdered sugar and mix by hand.
