Quick No-Cook Chocolate Glaze To Drizzle

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Last week I shared with you a very quick & easy single serve 60-second microwave brownie  recipe. I mentioned that sometimes to add a gooeyness that I crave I like to top the hot brownie with this pourable chocolate frosting.

It turns this quick & easy treat into something more like a molten chocolate cake.  

(Hey don’t judge, sometimes a girl just can’t get enough chocolate!) 

I promised to share the recipe with you and here it is, my friends. Get ready to be amazed!

It's so easy to make this quick no-cook drizzle chocolate & I always have these ingredients in my pantry - no more frosting in a plastic tub for me! #TexasHomesteader

This simple chocolate drizzle is so easy to whip up & I always have these ingredients in my pantry. No more frosting in a plastic tub for me!

I typically use the chocolate glaze drizzle recipe below for a couple of 60-second mug brownies I might quickly whip up for RancherMan & myself.

I’ve also used it on many occasions when I’m making my Instant Pot Cheesecake. Sometimes I want to dress up the cheesecake to a turtle fudge flavor.

And this simple chocolate drizzle comes together quickly with mix-n-pour convenience. In addition to adding a pop of chocolate flavor, I think it offers lots of eye candy to the cheesecake too.

So you can whip this simple mix-n-pour chocolate drizzle up in minutes for use in decadent sweets where a full layer of frosting isn’t desired.

I originally found this recipe several months ago at Our Heritage Of Health and she touted the recipe as being a healthy superfood since it uses honey, cocoa and coconut oil.

Two Important Reasons I Love This Drizzle

Of course healthy fare is a huge reason for any recipe in my kitchen. But (for me) there are two additional very important reasons:

First: Chocolate. I’m a certified chocoholic, and I love everything chocolate. The more the better in my opinion. So any recipe that includes chocolate? Well it’s gonna be a homerun for me right off the bat. (Homerun and bat – see what I did there??)

Second: It’s stir-n-eat convenient. There’s no cooking. You just stir it all together and pour it onto any dessert you want! Or if you like you can heat it up and use it as a hot-fudge topping – OH YUM!

Simple Mix-n-Pour Chocolate Drizzle

As I typically do, I amended the recipe slightly to suit what is usually found in my pantry. This delicious chocolate drizzle doesn’t require cooking, it’s mix-n-pour convenient.

This quick chocolate drizzle recipe has become a go-to recipe in my kitchen.  And it includes only 5 simple standard pantry ingredients. And it comes together in about 2 minutes.

I simply melt some coconut oil and stir in some cocoa powder, a little honey, a tiny bit of vanilla extract and a splash of cold coffee.

I always add just a touch of coffee to anything chocolate. I feel it intensifies the chocolaty flavor. Feel free to use a touch of milk instead if you like.

Anyway, here’s the simple mixing instructions. Enjoy your chocolate, y’all!

    Reading through the comments it looks like I could substitute water for the coffee – right? I can’t stand the taste of coffee, but other than that it looks really yummy.

      Absolutely Jendi, substituting water would be fine & I wonder about substituting milk for a milk-chocolate flavor? Hummm….. might be really good!

      Typically if a chocolate recipe calls for water in the ingredients I always substitute cold coffee. The coffee flavor just intensifies the chocolate flavor instead of watering it down like adding water would. (see, I told ya I was a chocoholic! LOL)
