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!

  4. How to make it if I don't have microwave.

    1. Use a double boiler. Add about a cup of water to a small pan. Place it on the stove top and bring the water to a boil. Lower heat to simmer. Place you ingredients in a heat resistant bowl larger than your plan. Place the bowl over the pan and melt your ingredients using indirect heat.

  5. Will this be a pouring consistency for cake tops?


Please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.
