Rich Chocolate Glaze

I was terribly doubtful about this recipe before I tried it. It looked too easy and that made me instantly suspicious.

Then I made it and all I can saw is wow. It’s really rather perfect. While this glaze would be perfect for a “snack cake” or loaf, it would also work beautifully as a glaze over-top a layer cake.

I frosted my cake with this glaze while it was still warm — which I recommend you do as well. And though I used a small spatula to cover the face of the cake but I didn’t play around too much with the glaze as I found that it set rather quickly. I allowed it to finish setting in the fridge overnight which I felt worked quite well as the glaze became almost like a soft fudge when cold. Perfection.

Rich Chocolate Glaze (adapted from Mama)

Makes enough glaze to cover a 9×13 inch cake

5 tablespoons unsalted butter

⅓ cup milk

1 cup granulated sugar

1 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, milk and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil for one minute. Remove from the burner and add the chocolate chips. Allow to the mixture to sit for one minute to let the chocolate melt, then use a wooden spoon to stir the glaze together. Use immediately, preferably to glaze a warm cake. Allow to set in the fridge for best results. Enjoy!
