Chocolate Glaze Recipe - Easy Chocolate Glaze for Cakes and Cookies

Chocolate Glaze Recipe
I have been making this chocolate glaze recipe since 2 yrs whenever I make birthday cakes for hubby and mittu. I am always reluctant to try heavy frosting with butter, cream etc So when I was searching for making a quick and simple glaze for mittus birthday cake 2 yrs back, happened to see this recipe and after that most of the cakes that I bake for family occassions will have this frosting as the lil one demands it.This is quick and handy which is originally from Hersheys website and I have tried this glaze with cakes,cupcakes and even for cookies, works perfect.I used this frosting for buttermilk chocolate cake that I made, will post the recipe by next week.

My Notes:

  • Don't melt the butter for more time, it will become ghee ;) Just melt it for 2 seconds thats enough.
  • Plus or minus water to adjust the consistency of the glaze.
  • Double the measures if you are making for a big cake.
  • The consistency is pourable as soon as its done.Once it is let to cool down it is spreadable though it will more fudgy.
  • You can refrigerate it for atleast a week and when you want to apply it, just add little hot water and whisk it to get the desired consistency.
  • You can replace powdered sugar with icing sugar too.
  • Just powder the sugar in a dry mixer.
