Step 1Place the chocolate in a large bowl.
Step 2In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, cream, water, vanilla, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a good simmer over high heat. Remove from heat.
Step 3Pour the cream mixture over the chocolate and gently stir to combine, melting the chocolate and forming a glaze.
Step 4The glaze will thicken as it cools. This makes 2 1/2 cups glaze, which will keep for up to 1 week, covered and refrigerated. Rewarm slightly to thin.
