Chocolate-Fudge Glaze

Chocolate-Fudge Glaze on Fudge Cupcakes

“From our Fudge Cupcake recipe. Good on banana cupcakes too. It was our favorite chocolate frosting up until discovering the Chocolate Ganache, but it has the advantage of not having to be prepared in advance.” – Calla Ferre

“The best way to frost cupcakes with this icing is to dip the tops in. You get a nice smooth, even coat with a glossy finish. This glaze would be wonderful for Donuts as well.” – April Ferre

Chocolate-Fudge Glaze

Course: Frostings & Fillings


  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 1-Ounce Squares Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
  • 2 Cups Confectioner’s Sugar Sifted


  • Heat water, butter, vanilla and chocolate. Add confectioner's sugar and beat well.
  • Works best if you dip tops of cupcakes in glaze rather than trying to use a utensil to spread glaze.
