Highly recommend this recipe because I have used it for several years. It is almost failproof and very versatile. Good over icecream too. Look no further for a quickly made glaze that does not require many ingredients. Thanks Kittencal......

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate baking squares (I use Baker's for this)
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl place the chocolate squares, whipping cream and butter.
  2. Microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes or until the butter has melted.
  3. Remove and whisk or stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is well blended (you might need to return to the microwave for a couple of seconds).
  4. Whisk in vanilla until combined.
  5. Let sit at room temperature to thicken more if desired before drizzling on cake.
