1 pound fine-quality semisweet chocolate such as Callebaut
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Preparation / Directions:

1. Finely chop chocolate. In a 1 1/2- to 2-quart saucepan bring cream, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil over moderately low heat, whisking until sugar is dissolved. Remove pan from heat and add chocolate, whisking until chocolate is melted. Cut butter into pieces and add to frosting, whisking until smooth.
