Easy to make and delicious. Very chocolatey and not too sweet. I put all the ingredients together in a glass bowl and microwaved it 15 seconds, stirred, then microwaved another 15 seconds, then stirred until blended and smooth. Perfect! (1000 watt microwave, your mileage may vary) Read More

Not what I was looking for- tasted like melted chocolate chips (of course that is yummy but I wanted something different). It also kind of separated out and looked wierd and rubber-like on my cake. It didn't run down the sides either. I prefer Satiny Chocolate Glaze from this site. The recipes are similar but that one works really well for me. Read More

Perfect to top my chocolate cake--thick, glossy and chocolatey. This couldn't be easier or quicker. Just melt, pour and spread! Hubby's only criticism, and I have to agree, is that there wasn't nearly enough of it on the cake. Unless you're just using this to drizzle over the cake, you MUST double this! Read More

This was excellent! I had to substitute honey for the corn syrup, and it turned out great. Made an excellent topping for eclairs. Held up well in the fridge. Great consistency, super quick, and easy! Read More

A bit disappointed- I poured it over a bundt cake and expected it to run down the sides but it wasn't thin enough. Too gloopy. I used the microwave method- I suppose I should have nuked the butter and corn syrup as well instead of mixing in after. Read More

this glaze was so fast and easy not to mention delicious. I've also made this glaze with milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chips. Read More

I made this twice (double batch both times) and I discovered the sequence of events that make this like a glaze, or make it thick. Frankly, I liked the way it turned out in the thick version for frosting the top of a single layer cake (the garbonzo bean choc cake which is better than it sounds.) For a glaze, microwave the chips and syrup together until melted. Then add all the butter and stir like crazy. For a thick fudgy frosting, melt the chips, then add the corn syrup and stir. It will seem too thick. Then add the butter about a teaspoon at a time until you get the consistency you want. It's tasty either way. Read More
