1 cup (225g) powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon (2.3mL) vanilla
2 teaspoons milk
4 teaspoons (20mL) cocoa powder
Prepare Chocolate Glaze by blending powdered sugar with cocoa powder, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Place in zipper tight plastic sandwich bag. Snip off one corner of bag (no more than 1/8 inch).
