Bring cream and corn syrup to a simmer in a small saucepan. Place chocolate in a food processor. With the machine running, add the cream mixture in a slow stream. Process until smooth and shiny.
Refrigerate in an airtight container, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to spread. Use immediately, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
