Mirror Chocolate Glaze

This is a perfect Chocolate Mirror Glaze recipe, ideal for frosting the sacher torte and many other cakes. This chocolate glaze is glossy, with a good chocolate flavor and a consistency easy to spread.
Preparation: 20 minutes
Chilling: 1 day
Total Time: 1 day 20 minutes
RECIPE FOR: 1000 gr of Chocolate Glaze


  • Cooking Thermometer
  • Sieve


  • 300 gr Dark Chocolate 70%
  • 150 gr Water
  • 300 gr Glucose Syrup
  • 300 gr Sugar
  • 200 gr Condensed milk
  • 28 gr Gelatin (sheets)


  • Heat water, glucose, and sugar and bring to a boil until 105°C (221°F).
  • Hydrate the gelatin sheets in cold water for 15minutes and melt in the microwave.
  • Chop the chocolate and place it in a tall and narrow mixing bowl.
  • Pour the hot syrup over the chopped chocolate. Add the gelatin and the condensed milk slightly heated and mix to create the emulsion without letting air into the glaze.
  • Sieve the glaze, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at +4°C (39°F) for 24 hours before using.
  • Before using the glaze, microwave it at about 35°C (95°F).


Chocolate Glaze can be stored in the fridge at +4°C (+39°F) for 7-10 days in an airtight container. This is important because chocolate has a strong ability to absorb odors.
The chocolate used in the recipe can be dark, milk, or white without altering the recipe.
The white chocolate glaze has an ivory color; I recommend adding titanium dioxide (white powdered dye) for a more pure-white color.
Do not use liquid colorants in any case.
Unlike cocoa frosting, this glaze is shinier and has a great chocolate flavor.
