How to successfully prepare chocolate icing like Delices & Gourmandises raspberry biscuits’ topping

Several small but exquisite pastries prepared by Delices & Gourmandises are coated with a delicious icing, among which are the raspberry biscuits. Here is a quick and easy-to-follow recipe to make your own chocolate icing.

What it takes to make the perfect icing

Basic ingredients for chocolate icing are chocolate (dark, bitter, white or milk), powdered sugar, butter and water. Proportions must be followed carefully to avoid the preparation being too thin or too thick.

You will need 50gr of chocolate, a little more if you use dark chocolate, 100gr of caster sugar, 50gr of butter and a glass of water (about 200ml).

How to prepare your icing?

The preparation is very quick. Heat the sugar and water in a saucepan until you get a rich-textured syrup; however, it should not be too thick when you dip a spoon in it. Be very careful not to boil the preparation.

Chop the chocolate and add the pieces to the syrup to melt. Stir regularly so that the mixture does not stick to the sides and bottom. Cook for about 5 min on low heat, then remove from heat. Add the butter while the preparation is still hot and mix well to obtain a homogeneous cream. Spread it on your pastries before it cools.

To vary the taste, you can flavor your icing with vanilla or citrus or a teaspoon of cognac.
