Dark Chocolate Glaze...

I posted this with the donut cookies, but really, it needs its own post.

You NEED this in your life.  Use it to decorate a cookie, slather it on graham crackers, dip some pretzels, eat it straight from the spoon.  JUST MAKE IT.  {Don't make me beg.}

The glaze dries shiny, hard (but not crunchy), and stackable.  I can't wait to show you what I did with it yesterday.  How's that for a teaser?!? 

Dark Chocolate Glaze

1/2 cup dutch-process cocoa (such as Hershey's Special Dark)
1 & 3/4 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP light corn syrup
3 TBSP (or more) milk

Whisk together the cocoa and powdered sugar.  Add in the corn syrup and milk; whisk until smooth and the consistency of glue.  Add more milk a little at a time, if needed.  Use immediately.

You don't have to be so fussy with the thinning like royal icing. Make the glaze so that it is the consistency of thick glue.  Pipe and outline (or not), then fill with the same consistency glaze.  It should all smooth out.  Some may run down the inside of the cookie.

The glaze will harden and be stackable in 12-24 hours.
