CHOCOLATE DOUGHNUT GLAZE
- Combine butter, milk, corn syrup, and vanilla in medium saucepan and heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Decrease the heat to low, add the chocolate, and whisk until melted. Turn off heat, add the powdered sugar, and whisk until smooth. Place the mixture over a bowl of warm water and dip the doughnuts immediately. Allow glaze to set for 30 minutes before serving.
- Gather the ingredients.
- Combine the butter and chocolate in a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted. (Be careful not to overheat the chocolate as it could seize.) Alternatively, put the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on medium for about 1 minute. Stir and continue to heat for about 15 seconds at a time, stirring between intervals, until the chocolate and butter are melted and smooth.
- Sift the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl.
- Stir the sifted confectioners' sugar into the melted butter and chocolate. Beat the mixture, adding small amounts of boiling water until thinned as desired. If you happen to find it too thin, add a little more powdered sugar. If too thick, add more hot water.
- Slowly drizzle the chocolate glaze from the pot or bowl over your cooled, finish baked good. If desired, use a spatula to evenly distribute. How long the glaze will take to harden will depend on both the temperature of the glaze and the room. Once cool, it will harden.

CHOCOLATE GLAZE OR FROSTING
This is very quick to prepare and can be used immediately after making as a glaze to drizzle on your cake or dessert. You can let it sit a few minutes and it will thicken up into a delicious and creamy frosting. Or add a little more powdered sugar to thicken it even more. I have no idea of the number of servings because it would depend on what you were using it for. So I just stuck a number in because I had to put something there. But I would probably double it for a two layer cake. But for a glaze over a cake or dessert this would probably be plenty.

EASY CHOCOLATE BUNDT CAKE GLAZE
Simple to make with only three ingredients with a variety of uses. Great to use over Bundt cake because it sets up nicely. The extra sauce may be refrigerated and reheated to serve over ice cream or your favorite dessert. I came up with this once when I didn't have any confectioner's sugar to make a glaze for a Bundt cake.

Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Cool slightly before drizzling over a cake. If you want to make this ahead, it can be cooled and reheated in the microwave.

This delicious icing was originally published for use with our clementine cake, but it can complement all kinds of desserts. It's best made in a double boiler, but if you don't have one, other pans will do, as described here.

- Heat a pan of water until simmering. Place all ingredients, plus 5 teaspoons water, in a slightly smaller metal or glass mixing bowl and set over the pan. Stir gently with a spatula until nearly all the chocolate has melted, then remove bowl from heat and set aside to finish melting, stirring occasionally until perfectly smooth, about 5 to 10 minutes. The glaze is ready to pour when it is between 88 and 90 degrees.
- Pour glaze onto center of the cake's top and let it run down the sides. Gently tap the cooling rack up and down so the glaze coats the entire cake. Let set for at least an hour before serving.

- Sift the sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add the cocoa powder, milk, vanilla, and salt and whisk or stir with a spoon until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add a little more milk to thin it to the desired consistency.
- If not using within 10 minutes of mixing, cover the bowl with plastic wrap to keep the glaze from drying out. Store at room temperature.

- Place the chocolate, butter, and corn syrup in a small heatproof bowl set in a wide skillet of barely simmering water. Stir frequently and gently (to prevent air bubbles) with a spatula or wooden spoon until the chocolate is almost completely melted. Remove the glaze from the water and set aside to finish melting, stirring once or twice until the glaze is perfectly smooth.
- Or, melt in a microwave on Medium (50%) power for about 2 minutes. Stir gently until completely smooth; do not whisk or beat. Taste and consider adding the salt. To use for crumb coating a cake before glazing it, let cool, without stirring, to a soft frosting consistency. To use as glaze, reheat gently in a pan of hot water (or let cool if just made) to 90°F (for optimal shine) before pouring. (The glaze can be kept, covered and refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks; or freeze it in a sealed container for up to 6 months. Soften or defrost in a pan of hot water or in the microwave.)
CHOCOLATE GANACHE GLAZE
- Place chocolate in a medium bowl. In a saucepan, bring cream to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Let cool until thick yet pourable, 2 to 3 minutes.
When you have a chocolate glaze recipe that's as versatile and simple as this one is, it's easy to rely on it time and again. It's so quick to prepare that you can wait until the last minute to mix it up. Or you can make it ahead and reheat it to a pourable consistency when you need it. This makes a hefty amount, so if you don't use all of it, just store the leftovers in a sealed container and refrigerate until needed.

- Bring the cream to a near boil in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla or espresso powder. Immediately add the chocolate chips. Tilt the pan this way and that so the hot cream runs over them. Set the pan aside for 5 minutes, then stir the mixture briefly to start smoothing it out.
- Let the mixture rest for another 2 to 3 minutes, then whisk briefly, until smooth. The glaze will be a little runny at first, perfect for drizzling on pound cakes and Bundt-type cakes. If you want slightly thicker coverage, such as on a cheesecake or sheet cake, you can let the glaze cool slightly before spreading it. If the sauce cools and starts to thicken and you need to rewarm it to thin it out, heat it very gently in a saucepan. You can also reheat it in a microwavable container, but proceed carefully so you don't burn the chocolate-microwave for no more than 15 seconds at a time, stirring between each round.
- 1. In a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan (no larger than 2 quarts, or the mixture will reduce too rapidly and burn before it reaches the correct temperature) over high heat, bring the sugar, water, and chocolate to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Attach a candy thermometer to the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, stirring, until the mixture reaches 234°F., about 5 minutes.
- 2. Remove from the heat and stir to cool and thicken slightly, about 1 minute. Use immediately. When pouring, do not scrape the pan.
- SMALL BATCH CHOCOLATE GLAZE
- Use 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, and 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate. Make the glaze in a small saucepan.
