Corn-syrup substitute for chocolate glaze (for chocolate tart)?

david_ipse | Aug 31, 2013 12:46 AM

Hello dear people—

I would love to know if you know of a replacement for corn syrup for the chocolate ganache used to glaze a chocolate tart. I'd really like to have that glossy look the glaze gives, but don't want to buy corn-syrup since I don't use it much. Is the corn-syrup for shine or viscosity? Would honey work instead?

Incidentally, if anyone has a favorite recipe for the chocolate filling inside the tart, I'd love to see it. Are there any advantages/disadvantages to making a mouse and chilling it in the pre-baked shell (per Thomas Keller's recipe in Bouchon) rather than baking the filling in the shell, like a custard?
