Too complicated, all you need is 3/4 c powder sugar, 1/4 c cocoa powder, 1.5 tbsp milk & 1/4 tbsp vanilla. Mix & done! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Corn Syrup! bah humbug item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really easy to make and great tasting, too. But take note; sift the confectionary sugar. I didn't and there were small lumps of the sugar that would NOT whisk out. But over all, I loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe today and it came out perfect. Light and fluffy and even better then store bought doughnuts. Whole recipe makes so many doughnuts and we are only two people. What I did. I made doughnuts with half of the dough and made a bread with the other half. It has little sweet and nutmeg flavor. I'll definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty. Yummy. Delicious. Awesome on doughnuts. Awesome to eat by the spoonful. I think it would go great on a Vanilla Bundt cake or pound cake. Easy to make. :- item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutly love this! I substituded the chocolate for 1/2 cup of cocoa and 4 tbsp. of sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful recipe!!! The only change I made was, used semi-sweet choc. chips instead of bittersweet chocolate, and didn't use any corn syrup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
WOWZA!! This glaze is great on chocolate doughnuts! It's very forgiving, too, since I roughly measured it and microwaved everything. It turned out perfectly! We put it on chocolate doughnuts and I think you could use it on Mudpie as well..........so good!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
the best! i use it on banana cake and other types of bundt cakes as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful glaze! i used it for my doughnuts and it was perfect, my sister loved it (she's the chocaholic in our family). But instead of using bittersweet chocolate, i used dark belgian chocolate (80% coco) and added a pinch of instant coffee powder and that brought out the rich chocolaty taste even more. Bringing it to my co-workers later today :D item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank You! Have been searching the net looking for a simple chocolate glaze made with cocoa powder, instead of chocolate chips & all the sifting BS... This was perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
a mere tablespoon and it's not high-fructose... I don't see the humbug here item not reviewed by moderator and published
As stated above, it's a very small amount- however, it makes the glaze flow nicely AND gives a pretty shine when the icing is set up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
