Chocolate glaze (without corn syrup)

Chocolate glaze is used to decorate cakes and pastries. It is very easy to make. Most recipes use corn syrup but it is not really needed to make good chocolate glaze.

You will need
1 1/2 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. Agave nectar or honey
2 tbsp. butter
a handful of semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl and heat for 10 seconds. Stir and put it back for 10 seconds. Repeat until the chocolate chips and butter are completely melted. Keep aside and let it cool. It will thicken a little. Use as needed.


  1. This was delicious! We used it on vanilla cupcakes instead of frosting. Thank you!
