  • 1/2 cup butter cut into pieces (1 stick)
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup


  • Set a glass or metal bowl over a pot of gently simmering water to create a double boiler (do not let the water touch the bowl). To the bowl, add chocolate and butter to melt, whisking until smooth and blended.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in corn syrup until smooth and glossy. Pour over your favorite cakes, cookies, and candy or use as a coating for fruit and nuts. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
