Once you try this very simple, chocolate fudge glaze, you will be sold on it. I use it for a wide variety of things because it just takes a minute to whip up, it is delicious and provides a thick shiny glaze. I pour it on brownies while they are still hot & in the pan. You can dip cupcakes or cookies into it or pour it over a cake. It is thick, sweet, super smooth and even stays shiny after it dries (very pretty). I hope you try it. If you find some new, unique use for this glaze, please let me know. Sorry about todays poor photo quality, these photos were taken in a hurry.
½ cup light corn syrup (like Karo)
5 tablespoons water
5 tablespoons butter

Bring these three ingredients to a full boil, and boil for 20 seconds. Remove from heat and add: 12 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Stir until melted and smooth. Cool to room temperature before you use it.

NOTE: I have not tried it, but I do not see any reason that you could not use ANY flavor baking chips for this recipe...I believe white chocolate would be very pretty.
NOTE: This glaze does not dry to the touch until the next day, so I wouldn't use this on anything that you have to pack for shipping.
