Stir in the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Now add in the milk and yolks gradually while stirring until blended.

Cook over medium heat and bring the mix to a boil. Remove from heat and add in the butter and vanilla. Cover and chill.

For Glaze:

In a saucepan, heat the water and the butter over medium heat until it boils. Now immediately add in the cocoa.

Slowly add in the sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth. Cool slightly before using.

Merry Christmas!
