This was so easy. I figured out that I could just use a little over a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in place of the squares. I was looking for the recipe that would taste like a candy bar on the cake and this does.

In a word, PERFECT. I used good quality chocolate (Scharffenerger) and used this to glaze little egg shaped cakes made with the "Black Chocolate Cake" recipe. This was so easy, so quick, so rich and delicious. Shiny and glossy, very easy to work with, and sets up nicely. I kept the glaze in a double boiler and kept it warm as I glazed my little cakes--just dipped each cake--and had them glazed in a New York minute! I am so impressed with this glaze that not only will it become one of my favorite recipes, but I'm also going to tinker with it to make a white chocolate version as well (may have to adjust the butter for it, but I'll figure it out!) I believe that sooner or later this simple and beautiful glaze will "catch on" and it will become one of the favorites on this site!

Wonderful thick rich chocolate that holds it shape without being hard. Used this on flourless chocolate cake II from this site that I made in mini muffin tins. I was able to stack these mini cakes with no sticking!
