In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine 1-1/2 cups of water, the
sugar, and corn syrup. Stir in the chocolate and cook, stirring
constantly, until the chocolate is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of water and the cornstarch and whisk until the cornstarch is dissolved. Add the dissolved cornstarch paste and the heavy cream to the chocolate mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour before serving.

or with whipped cream.
