Easy Chocolate Glaze

Updated on May 22, 2013
4.7 stars from 3 ratings of Chocolate Glaze


To me, nothing dresses up dessert like a beautiful chocolate glaze. The way it flows like shiny brown satin is the equivalent of food porn. It makes my mouth sing and pushes the dessert lover over the edge. Okay, I am going too far with my dessert obsession, but I have to say that it simply is not dessert if you don't add some chocolate to it.

This is an incredibly easy glaze for all your dessert needs. The most difficult part about it is over heating it. Some people prefer to use the double boiler method, but I think the microwave does fine for this recipe.

I have used this smooth and glossy glaze on a bundt cake, fruit, strawberries in particular and raspberries too. It is wonderful over cheesecake, angel food cake or plush yellow cake as well.


  • 8 oz semi sweet chocolate, chopped into fine pieces
  • 2 Tbs Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbs Dark Brewed Coffee

  1. Melt chocolate in microwave for 10 seconds on high. Stop to whisk and repeat heating until smooth. This takes about 5 -7 times. Do not overheat or chocolate will burn and become hard.
  2. Quickly whisk in the rest of the ingredients when all chocolate is melted. The glaze should look glossy and smooth when finished.
  3. Drizzle over fresh fruit, cake, icecream or pie

    Thanks and I will confirm that it does do the job we chocoholics require it to do. My husband eats it with a spoon when I make it.
