Chocolate Glaze Recipe

This chocolate glaze is similar to ganache except corn syrup has been added.  This will give the glaze a nice shiny finish that will not dull if refrigerated.  The flavor of the chocolate used really shines through in this recipe so use a good quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate that you enjoy.

Place the chocolate and butter in a double boiler or medium heatproof bowl and set over a saucepan with simmering water.  Stir until melted then remove from heat.

Whisk in the corn syrup and brandy until smooth.  Strain through a fine strainer to remove any lumps.  

The glaze can be made ahead, refrigerated, and then re-melted to use as a glaze.  Re-melt in a stainless steel bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.  Let glaze almost melt and then remove from heat to finish melting.
