Chocolate Glaze

Make about ½ cup

1 square unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons boiling water


1.                  Melt butter and chocolate over hot water.  Remove from heat; let cool.

3.                  With rotary beater, beat just until mixture is smooth and well combined.  (Glaze seems thin, but will thicken on standing.)
