  • In a sauce pan over medium heat, add heavy cream and sugar.
  • Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture is hot.
  • Pour over the chocolate and mix until smooth.
  • Pour glaze over the chocolate cake.*****
  • cut into pieces and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

* Make your own by combining 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. ** You can use 1 cup of your preferred brewed coffee. ** You can also use other spices like ground ginger, nut meg .. cloves. **** I kept adding pumpkin puree and taste the filling until I got to the good taste for my family which was 1/2 cup. I have a kid who does not like pumpkin at all so I did not want to overdo it. If it was for me I would’ve added the whole cup. ***** It is easier to for glaze through a squeeze bottle.
