How to Make the Easiest Chocolate Topping
I have been fascinated with chocolate cakes for a really long time and therefore, it led me to do various experiments with chocolates. For all those who are chocolate lovers like myself and want to learn the easiest chocolate topping for, be it cake or pudding, I am going to impart with one of the simplest chocolate topping recipes!
I generally use Black and Gold’s Dark compounded cooking chocolate but you can use any other dark chocolate.
15 Tablespoons (or 15 cubes of chocolate) of dark chocolate
3 tablespoons of butter (butter helps to semi solidify the chocolate when it cools down, however, do not use too much butter as it makes the topping dull...it takes away the shiny quality of this particular chocolate)
8 Tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk (if you like to keep your chocolate darker then use less condensed milk)
½ a teaspoon of vanilla
How to prepare:
Take a small pot and fill it with about 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to boil.
In another stainless steel bowl that fits the pot in which you put the water to boil, put in the chocolate and let it melt. Never Ever put the chocolate in a pot and then put it directly on stove as it ruins the taste of the chocolate and there is a high chance of burning the chocolate (no matter how slight).
After the chocolate has completely melted, add the butter, condensed milk and vanilla. Stir with a wooden spatula till mixed properly. And hurray you are done!
You should pour it on your cake while the chocolate topping is still hot, as it will mould to your cake while it cools.
