Fabulous Chocolate Glaze

This recipe is one of my most reliable stand-bys. I used this glaze to decorate the edge of Milla’s Very Own Chocolate Cake topped with White Mountain Frosting. It’s versatile: I’ve used it to make chocolate sundaes, milkshakes, and as a topping for Cream Puffs - a recipe I’ll blog for you in a couple of days.
Fabulous Chocolate Glaze:
1 c. icing sugar, sifted
2 tbsp. pure cocoa, sifted
1 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
2 tbsp. water
In a mixing bowl, combine icing sugar and cocoa. Heat butter and water together in a microwave-safe container just until water comes to a boil. Add to dry ingredients, stirring until mixture begins to thicken and becomes smooth. Use immediately; glaze sets fast! This makes enough glaze to drizzle over 10 large or 24 small cream puffs.
