Ganache for glazing
Heavy Cream 6 oz
Chocolate (Chopped) 8 oz
Corn Syrup 2 oz
1 Bring cream to a boil with syrup and pour over chocolate, let set for about 30 seconds.
2 With an immersion blender, blend mixture until smooth. (don't pump the immersion blender up and down pulse briefly to get it going and a vortex with form, you don't want to force air into it by pumping up and down). Let cool until thick but still pour-able.
