We tried out a new chili recipe (post coming later) and made a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Yummo! Yellow cake with chocolate frosting is my absolute favorite. But truth be told, the cake came from a box, but I still count it as homemade because I had to mix and bake it myself. :) I didn't want a ton of big, puffy, chocolate frosting so I went searching for a simple chocolate glaze to cover the cake. This recipe came together so easily and was super delicious!!!
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Then add vanilla.
- Spread warm glaze over top of cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.
- Add sprinkles!!! Because no cake is complete without sprinkles. :)
- Hide from your husband - mine kept trying to convince me to cut him a slice of the cake before dinner so that he could assure quality control.
