7When the milk and sugar mixture is melted and warm, pour it over the chocolate and corn syrup. Let it sit for a minute to heat the chocolate, then whisk until smooth.

8Let it cool just slightly to thicken a little bit, then slowly pour it over the cooled cake.

Garnishing with nuts is up to you. I think they looked nice against all of that chocolate.
