Dark Chocolate Glaze...

I posted this with the donut cookies, but really, it needs its own post.

You NEED this in your life.  Use it to decorate a cookie, slather it on graham crackers, dip some pretzels, eat it straight from the spoon.  JUST MAKE IT.  {Don't make me beg.}

The glaze dries shiny, hard (but not crunchy), and stackable.  I can't wait to show you what I did with it yesterday.  How's that for a teaser?!?

Dark Chocolate Glaze

1/2 cup dutch-process cocoa (such as Hershey's Special Dark)
1 & 3/4 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP light corn syrup
3 TBSP (or more) milk

Whisk together the cocoa and powdered sugar.  Add in the corn syrup and milk; whisk until smooth and the consistency of glue.  Add more milk a little at a time, if needed.  Use immediately.

You don't have to be so fussy with the thinning like royal icing. Make the glaze so that it is the consistency of thick glue.  Pipe and outline (or not), then fill with the same consistency glaze.  It should all smooth out.  Some may run down the inside of the cookie.

The glaze will harden and be stackable in 12-24 hours.

  1. Well. I certainly won't make you beg. Especially where chocolate is involved...I want a huge vat of this!!

  2. I absolutely knew I had to have it when I saw it on those donut cookies. I can think of so many uses for this luscious stuff! Like just on a spoon because it's Tuesday. Does that work?

  3. Those are porn pictures with that sexy chocolate glaze!!!! MMMMMMMMMMMMM.

  4. um, that sounds like something I need in my life, like today!!! It looks so yummy.

  5. It sounds amazing, and yes, DREAMY. I would love a spoonful in my oatmeal this morning! :-)

  6. I have made something like it, but never used the special dark cocoa... GENIUS!!! You are awesome girl. :)

  7. oh yes I love me some chocolate glaze, YUM!

  8. oh yes I love me some chocolate glaze, YUM!

  9. I need this to put on anything and everything. YUM!

  10. This is a great recipe. I usually make glazes with chocolate bars and milk. This is a different take on it. Also, don't forget dipping strawberries or pound cake - yumm.

    1. You had me at strawberries dipped in chocolate. Bridget: Can this be used on a cake instead of ganache?

  11. This post comes at the perfect time, Bridget. I have been wanting to try out glaze as an alternative to my regular royal icing. Chocolate glaze is even better! Now, what am I going to do with it? I think I will just have to wait and see what you made with it for inspiration! :)

  12. Sure looks dreamy! Ahh! And those donut cookies are adorable, I would love to make them with my heart cookie cutters!
    Might just have to make 'em and blog 'bout it!


  13. That drippy photo is amazing! I loved the post for those cookies! I need to make them soon - so i can make this glaze!

  14. Bridget, do you think this glaze would work poured over an upside down cupcake? Ganache stays sticky. I am looking for something with a soft bite but dry to the touch. This looks delicious and I will use it on cookies even if the cupcake idea doesn't work. Thanks!

  15. Thanks for posting this recipe. I use glaze icing on my cookies and I'm thinking this would be a great start for when I need black glaze.

  16. mmmmmm..... do you have a pin button? Am i missing something? thanks for sharing

  17. That photo of the long drip is fabulous! :)

  18. Bridget- I love you... I mean I loved you before this glaze recipe, but I LOVE you now. :-)

  19. Came here to check out your dark chocolate glaze recipe and fell for your last photograph. Beautiful glaze. Gorgeous shot, Bridge. *Sigh* Indeed! Love. It. xo

  20. Yum, I will definitely make this!!

  21. I can almost taste that glaze! Wonderful!

  22. I want to reach right out, wipe away that drip from the bowl and lick it off my finger!
