Hard Setting Chocolate Glaze


We spent a lot of time searching for the perfect chocolate glaze. Sure, there are countless delicious glazes out there, but we need one that hardens when it’s cool so that we can create chocolate-covered cookies, dipped donuts and glazed cakes. This recipe definitely fits the bill. The secret is the low liquid to dry ratio, which keeps this glaze sweet, chocolaty and thick.

We like to set this glaze up fondue-style and dip pretzel rods, graham crackers or fresh fruit into it. It’s a great way to add a special touch to store-bought cookies, and everyone appreciates our chocolate-dipped treats around the holidays. The best part is that this glaze comes together in about five minutes, so you can whip up a batch whenever you get a craving for chocolate.
