Chocolate Glaze (That Hardens when Cool)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

ISO: Chocolate Glaze that dries hard using cocoa and without... Saw this and found the answer. This would be good now with Valentine's Day is near. Try using it like those chocolate dips they have in ice cream shops; it hardens into a shell on the ice cream. Or use it to top your favorite cookie, cupcake, cheesecake, brownie, etc..

this is a good icing for a bundt type cake or brownies, but it is not at all like the hard shell you get on ice cream. This doesn't get that hard. To get the true hard shell chocolate, the type you can pick up with your fingers without it sticking to them is by using chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup.
