- 125 grams of dark chocolate for desserts
- 25 grams of unsalted butter
- 100 milliliters of whipping cream or milk cream
- 2 tablespoons of water
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Chop the chocolate finely with a sharp knife. Also chop the butter.
Also prepare the cake, cake or the preparation you want to glaze. Put the dessert on a rack with a tray underneath, because you have to put the shiny chocolate icing on top, and the normal thing is that some icing falls down the sides.
Put the cream or milk cream in a saucepan on the fire and bring it to a boil. Remove and add the chopped chocolate. Stir constantly with a spatula to melt all the chocolate in the hot cream.
Add the chopped butter and stir constantly for a smooth chocolate frosting.
Finally, add the two tablespoons of water and remove quickly, but integrating well.
Pour the plain chocolate frosting into the prepared dessert. You have to add it directly from the saucepan, leaving the frosting to fall in the center of the cake and gradually going down the sides.
Once everything is added, help yourself with a spatula Gently covering the sides or places that have not been covered by the chocolate glaze.
Let the chosen cake cool down so that the icing dries. You can leave it in the fridge 30 minutes to cool well.
