  • Step One: Sift Powdered Sugar
  • Use a mesh strainer to sift powdered sugar into the large bowl, eliminating any lumps.
  • Step Two: Add Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Add the unsweetened cocoa powder to the sifted cocoa powder and mix together.
  • Step Three: Add Butter or Margarine
  • Add the softened butter or margarine and stir the mix together.
  • Step Four: Add in the Water
  • Add in the warm water, one tablespoon at a time, until the drizzle has reached your desired consistency. Pour or drizzle the chocolate over your desired dessert.
  • Adding chocolate drizzle not only tastes delicious but makes for some beautiful desserts. This chocolate drip cake is the perfect example of how elegant chocolate drizzle can make cakes look.


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You want to avoid keeping desserts decorated with chocolate drizzle out of the heat, as it will cause the chocolate to melt and drip. It is best to store dessert with chocolate drizzle covered at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • It is important to sift your powdered sugar prior to making the chocolate drizzle. Sifting allows for a smooth, lump-free powdered sugar that will ensure a smooth and rich chocolate 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.
