This is glorious! Buttery, chocolatey goodness. Perfect for dipping cupcakes!! (Amount stated was a bit more than I needed to glaze 24 full size cupcakes) Instead of bittersweet chocolate, I used up the rest of my semi-sweet chocolate chips. And, I just microwave'd butter and chocolate - as opposed to using the double boiler.

Bittersweet chocolate is not generally my preferenence for either eating or baking, but since hubs prefers dark chocolate I prepared this glaze as the recipe directs, using high quality Scharffen Berger bittersweet chocolate, and whoa, this made for an intensely chocolate glaze! It is soft, yet still looks glossy and shiny even after it sets. I used this to glaze the rather plain tasting "Neapolitan Cake," also from this site, and they were perfect for each other. This would be the type of glaze I'd expect to see on European tortes or petit fours -it has that kind of smooth, professional look. I used the microwave to make this but let it go a little too long, so it wasn't as perfectly smooth as it should have been -be extra careful and attentive when melting chocolate, especially when you're using the expensive, good stuff! Once melted, it was a little too thin to pour, so I just stuck it in the fridge, stirring every now and then, till it became the right consistency. Serious chocolate fans will love this glaze!

I made this yesterday and it worked beautifully on a pound cake. Great taste and easy to make and use. I did it all in the microwave.
