  1. In a food processor, process the butter, sugar, cocoa, and salt until smooth.
  2. Add the corn syrup and vanilla and then scrape the sides.
  3. Add the milk chocolate and pulse until smooth and creamy.

If you do not have cake flour, measure out 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour. Remove 5 tablespoons of the flour and replace it with 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. Sift together.
