I’ve never been a huge fan of the traditional Powdered Sugar Frosting or Glazes. To me they are just far too sweet. But when you make Doughnuts you have to have something on top! Otherwise it is just too plain and not enticing. So I experimented around with a few different traditional glaze recipes. I found I much prefer a chocolate base when it comes to glazes. It can turn an ordinary doughnut into something extraordinary! The result is my super simple chocolate glaze recipe! I’m not joking either. This Chocolage Glaze recipe is very simple to make.
Chocolate Glaze Ingredients:
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 3 1/2 Cups -4 cups Powdered Sugar (depends on how thick you want your glaze the thicker..add more sugar)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cold water
- 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
Chocolate Glaze Directions
Mix all ingredients in a small pan, and then heat gently on the stove at medium heat to ensure all sugar is dissolved. You want to make sure you stir frequently. Otherwise it may burn.
Once all sugar is dissolved the chocolate Glaze is complete. See I told you it was super easy. But you have to make certain that the sugar is completely dissolved or it will crystallize on you. Don’t try to speed through the process.
Set aside to cool. But not too long, or it will develop a crystal surface. Then use as you would any normal Glaze.
