Creamy Chocolate Glaze

On Mother's Day, I made this Angel Food Cake with Chocolate Glaze for my mom and me.  I know, angel food cake is healthy,  until you add the wonderful, yummy, chocolate!  The cake below never had a chance.  Since we had an early dinner (2 PM), the cake was totally consumed on Sunday night during "fend for yourself" dinner!


1/3 cup butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar (10x)
2 oz. cocoa or unsweetened chocolate, melted and cool
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2-4 Tbsp hot water


1.  Melt butter in saucepan.  Do not let it brown!

2.  Blend in sugar, vanilla, and cocoa.  Stir in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze is of proper consistency.

3.  Glaze cake.  To make the drips on the side, you may have to add a few more drops of hot water so it will "drip" down!

4.  Enjoy!
