A deep, dark chocolate glaze is the perfect finishing touch to any decadent dessert.
Baking doesn’t have to be complicated. And nothing is better than a rich, delicious chocolate glaze that sets up nice and hard. I’m going to show you how to make it with just 2 ingredients. Use this glaze to cover an entire cake OR to dip individual cupcakes or donuts in it for glossy chocolate finish.
I’ve made chocolate glaze recipes that involve using bittersweet chocolate, honey, vanilla, butter, and cream (or coconut cream) that have been amazing. But I find that using sweetened chocolate chips and a bit of coconut oil is super easy and makes a fantastic glaze for just about anything that you would want to cover with chocolate.
Let me know if you give this simple recipe a try. I KNOW you are going to LOVE it!
- Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in double boiler (I use a small glass bowl nested in a pot), stirring often, until glossy and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- Pour over cake, allowing it to run over the sides for a dramatic look. OR dip each cooled cupcake/donut/cookie into glaze, allowing excess to drip off. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes.
This recipe will glaze one cake or about 18 regular sized cupcakes. Any extra glaze can be poured onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and chilled. Break apart for a delicious chocolate treat.
