Coca Mocha Icing

Coca Mocha Icing
2 cups icing sugar, approximately
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1/2 cup boiling water

In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cocoa until blended. In a mug, mix together the vanilla, coffee, and water. Gradually add this to the sugar mixture, stirring until smooth, until icing is of desired consistency. You may not need all of the water or you may need to add some more icing sugar. 
This is a sweet and thick chocolate glaze with a mild coffee flavor. To make a lighter glaze, decrease the amount of cocoa. To make a darker glaze, add some more cocoa or some more coffee for a stronger flavor. This icing does not need to be refrigerated since it contains no perishable ingredients. However, because it contains no fat, it is not as easily spread and is not ideal for piping.
