Chocolate high shine glazes ideas for Entremets and desserts

This recipe comes from Julie Sharp, senior technical advisor for Barry Callebaut


  • High shine dark chocolate glaze:
  • 300g water
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 350g glucose syrup (DE44)
  • 200g sweetend condensed milk
  • 26g leaf gelatin
  • 350g Callebaut 70-30-36 dark chocolate
  • For white and coloured glaze use:
  • 400g white chocolate in this recipe
  • Gold Spider glaze:
  • 4g gold metallic powder
  • 20 80% alcohol
  • 100g clear nappage
  • 60g water


Bring the water, sugar and glucose to the boil and cook to 103°c. Take off the heat and gently stir in condensed milk and glucose (we do not want to incorporate bubbles). Place the chocolate into a high sided jug and pour over the liquid and emulsify with a hand blender, keep it at the base of the jug to try to minimise bubbles. Strain. Allow to set over night in a refrigerator.
To use: gently reheat to 35-38°c and pour over a frozen mousse. Place in a refrigerator and allow to defrost.
Gold Spider glaze:
Mix all of the ingredients together. Warm up in a microwave to 50°c. Pour out onto a tray and dip your palette knife into the glaze and spread across your chocolate glaze as soon as you have glazed it.
