Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375º F. Lay out the walnut cookie molds.

Press a teaspoonful of chilled dough into the bottom and up the sides of each mold. Place molds on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. Let cool for 5 to 7 minutes in the mold, then push on the thick edge of each cookie and remove from mold. Cool completely on a wire rack.

In a medium saucepan, heat the cream and corn syrup over medium heat, until just steaming. Remove pan from heat source.

Cool until the chocolate thickens, whisking frequently.
