1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 - 2 teaspoon hot water

**Glazes top of one 12-cup bundt cake, 10-inch angel food cake, 13 x 9-inch cake or 8- or 9-inch layer cake.**

Chocolate Cappuccino Glaze: Stir in 2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee (dry) with the chocolate chips.

Milk Chocolate Glaze: Substitute milk chocolate chips for the semisweet chocolate chips.

Mint Chocolate Glaze: Substitute mint chocolate chips for the semisweet chocolate chips.

White Chocolate Glaze: Substitute white baking chips for the chocolate chips.

Betty's Tip: Glaze is a perfect topper for cakes that would be too rich if frosted. It's also great for drizzling decoratively over the top of cake, bars or cookies. To save some time, place chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup in a 2-cup microwavable measure. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate can be stirred smooth. Don't add the water.
