Hershey's Chocolate Glaze

This is one of my favorite Hershey's recipes. It's absolutely decadent and turns any cake into a show piece. Its great on a Bundt cake because it oozes down the sides in between the ridges of the cake. I also use it on Lickity Split Cocoa Cake. Sinfully delicious!

1/4 cup HERSHEY'S unsweetened cocoa
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tbs corn syrup
1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine cocoa, water, butter or margarine and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and thickened.

Tip from Joey:
If you'd like to make your glaze even richer, substitute 3 tbs coffee for the 3 tbs water. Also, I like to use a wire whisk when I mix it up to insure that there are no lumps of powdered sugar.
