CHOCOLATE ICING GLAZE (Ganache)

Great for drizzling on Bundt Cakes, Donuts, Eclairs, and cookies.


Ingredients

4 oz Dark Chocolate pieces (3/4 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips) 
1/2 Cup Heavy Cream (Whipping Cream)

Place the chocolate in a bowl you can use a whisk in

In a sauce pan bring the cream to a boil around the edges while whisking.

Immediately pour the hot cream over the chocolate pieces.  Let sit 1 minute to melt the chocolate pieces.  Then whisk until the mixture is smooth and becomes glossy.

Glaze only items that have been cooled to at least room temperature.  Never Glaze hot or warm items.

This chocolate glaze will set semi-thick, but not harden up to become brittle.   Not fluffy like icing. Similar to the chocolate topping found on cream filled donuts.

Note: To create a fluffy icing or fluffy filling wait until the mixture has cooled until thick,  Then whip with a whisk until lighter color and fluffy.
