Sometimes you just want a nice chocolate glaze topping that’s easy to make and doesn’t crack when sliced. This is perfect for topping and glazing a traybake, covering chocolate eclairs, shortbread fingers, and more.

I used this chocolate glaze topping for a chocolate tray bake and a Chocolate cake with a Hazelnut chocolate spread filling.

Let me know how you get on and what you used the topping for.

Ingredients

  • 200 g dark chocolate roughly chopped
  • 90 g unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Melt the chocolate and butter in a heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir frequently until melted and smooth. Leave to one side to cool a little.
  • Pour the chocolate over the top of the cake while still in the baking tin. Or as desired.
  • Before it sets completely, use a fork to create a zig zag pattern in the chocolate.
  • Score the chocolate topping into individual slices to make it easier to slice when ready to eat.
