How to make the perfect homemade dark chocolate glaze from scratch? This recipe yields a tasty dark chocolate glaze with all the right characteristics: a mirror-like shine, a deep, vibrant colour and an intense dark chocolate taste. Once warmed up to about 35°C, it applies easily in a sufficiently thick layer and sticks beautifully to your patisserie without running off. Always apply onto frozen patisserie. Our chefs recommend using a Finest Belgian Chocolate such as recipe n° 811 with standard three-drop fluidity (💧💧💧) to achieve the perfect end result. This glazing can be kept in the fridge for about one week.
