How to make the crust:

  3. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and process until the crust comes together.

  4. Place the crust into prepared pan and press down firmly.

  5. Bake the crust for 7 to 8 minutes.

  4. Scoop the filling onto the ready crust. Spread evenly. Smooth the top out with an offset spatula.

  5. Place the pan in a fridge to chill until set (2 hours to overnight).

Ingredients to make the ganache:

  1. Place the chocolate in a medium mixing bowl.

  2. Place the cream, sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan and heat to just boiling. Remove from heat.

  3. Pour the cream over the chocolate. Do not mix! Let stand 5 minutes.

  4. Whisk the ganache until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.

  5. Pour the ganache over the filling or top each slice just before serving.
