    For those who don't want to use corn syrup - I had to add a touch more heavy cream to get the "drippy" effect. Worked well.

    Does this chocolate glaze firm and set, or does it stick to the touch? I may have to travel with these so I'm wondering if they'll be messy :)

    the recipe does say to bring the cream to a boil, then removefrom heat- so heat it til it comes to a boil, however long that takes on your stove

    Should you warm the cream over medium or low heat?

    It does seem as though the beginning of the directions were omitted. Basically, you just want to get the cream hot enough to melt the chocolate. So, heat the cream until tiny bubbles form around the edges, then pour it over the bowl of chocolate/corn syrup mixture. Let stand for 5 min, then stir until smooth. It's easy peasy.

Let stand for 5 min, then stir with a rubber spatula until smooth.

    I think on the show today she said until a good boil startes or around 2 minutes.

    The directions seem to be incomplete. How long do you cook the cream?
