DIRECTIONS

  • Place the chocolate in the bowl of a food processor and process just until finely ground (leave the chocolate in the processor).
  • In a small saucepan, bring the cream to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate to the pan.
  • Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the glaze is smooth.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the glaze to a small bowl; cover the surface of the glaze with a piece of plastic wrap and let cool for about 10 minutes before using.
  • To glaze a cake, place the cake on the wire rack over a wax-paper- or foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Slowly pour the glaze over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
  • Let glaze set for about 30 minutes before slicing the cake.
