What You Can Use Chocolate Drizzle For

The great thing about chocolate drizzle is it is easy to use, and you can use it on just about anything. Chocolate drizzle is often put on cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, brownies, pies, and donuts. It even works great for dipping or drizzling over fresh fruit.

Chocolate drizzle is often referred to as chocolate glaze. Though the recipes can vary, it is often made up of a few simple ingredients. Regardless of the ingredients, chocolate glaze is generally simple to make.  

What You Can Use Chocolate Drizzle For

Using cocoa powder allows the glaze to achieve a perfect chocolate taste. However, chocolate glaze recipes may call for semisweet, unsweetened or dark chocolate.

Chocolate Drizzle Drip Cakes

One of the most popular dessert trends right now is chocolate drip cakes. Drip cakes consist of a frosted cake, that has chocolate dripped down the sides and covering the top. The chocolate drip creates a beautiful effect and adds a delightful touch of chocolate to the cake.

If you want to make your own drip cake, start off with a frosted cake. Allow the frosted cake to chill in the fridge for at least thirty minutes. Then, take your drizzle while it is still warm and go around the cake with a spoon, allowing the chocolate to drip down.

Chocolate Drizzle Drip Cakes

Once you have created drips all around the cake, at different lengths, you can use a spatula to make a smooth layer of chocolate on top. You can also use a plastic bottle to create the drips. It is best to use a turntable when decorating a drip cake, as this will make it easier to create the drip effect.

Tips and Tricks

In The Process

When making your glaze, you want it to be supple enough to cut with a knife with ease, but dense enough it will stay on your desserts. That’s why it is important to add only one tablespoon of water at a time, as it will allow you to achieve the proper consistency.

It is important to sift your powdered sugar prior to making the drizzle. Sifting allows for a smooth, lump-free powdered sugar that will ensure a smooth and rich drizzle.

Quick And Easy

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to drizzle chocolate, you can use a fork. Simply dip the fork in the warm chocolate, letting the excess drip off and drizzle the chocolate over your dessert. For a more controlled drizzle, you can put the warm chocolate glaze in a plastic bag and snip of the end, then use your hands to squeeze the chocolate out to create your desired drizzle pattern.

How To Store

Leftover glaze can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. You may store your desserts covered in glaze at room temperature for up to four days, covering to keep the dessert moist and fresh. You can freeze the chocolate for up to six months, however, the texture may change when you thaw it out.

Step by Step Instructions How To Store

You want to avoid keeping desserts decorated with drizzle out of the heat, as it will cause the chocolate to melt and drip. It is best to store dessert with drizzle covered at room temperature or in the fridge.

How To Use Your Drizzle

It is best to use the drizzle while it is still warm. This will allow it to set on your dessert after drizzling. If your drizzle thickens up before you use it, you can place it in the microwave for a few seconds and stir it. This will allow it to have a more workable texture.

Chocolate drizzle can be messy to work with, so it is a good idea to keep a wet paper towel nearby to wipe off your hands, so you don’t get chocolate everywhere. If you spill some chocolate, it is best to clean it up right away, otherwise, it will harden and be difficult to get off kitchen surfaces.
