Chocolate Glazes & Frostings Back to Colleen's Recipes

Each of these recipes can be found in Hershey's Homemade Cookbook.

Chocolate Glaze

I probably use the chocolate glaze more than the cocoa, because it is easy to keep chocolate chips on hand.

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 tablespoon water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In small saucepan, combine butter, corn syrup and water; place over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Cool to room temperature.

Makes about 1 cup glaze

Cocoa Glaze

I'll make the cocoa glaze if I happen to have whipping cream for something else I'm baking.

1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


In small saucepan, stir together whipping cream and corn syrup .In bowl, stir together cocoa and sugar; add to cream mixture, stirring well. Add butter. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter melts and mixture is smooth. DO NOT BOIL. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool to desired consistency.

Makes about 1 cup glaze.
