This Brown Sugar Glaze recipe is sticky and sweet and takes only a few minutes to whip up! You will want to drizzle it over everything!
It is the holiday season which is always my favorite time of year when it comes to food. This brown sugar glaze is a perfect sauce to pour on ultimately anything.
This is my go-to ham glaze recipe. I love how the molasses in the light brown sugar really brings the flavor to life in this glaze. And although I typically serve this on a baked ham, I also like to drizzle it over desserts such as cakes, cookies, or even side dishes like my Balsamic Brussel Sprouts.

Add in another Tablespoon of water or broth until you reach your desired consistency.
Yes. I will let you know that I typically use chicken broth, or the juice of whatever protein I am cooking such as ham juice. However, if you are following a Vegan diet you can use water or vegetable broth and you’re all set!
Of course! You can really make it your own. Some ingredients I would recommend adding in to boost up the sweetness would be butter, honey, maple syrup, cream, powdered sugar, or any other spices you prefer.
