Chocolate Glaze

"I discovered this glaze as part of a cheesecake recipe and now I use it on it's own for other recipes. I like that it doesn't harden to the point where it will crack when you are cutting into it even after it is stored in the fridge. But it does harden up quite a bit. You can make more or less of this recipe as needed."

I made this to have on some brownies and I added nuts to the glaze. We loved it and I can see myself using this on other things as well, namely Angel Food Cake for starters!
