Top with chocolate filling; spread to form even layer 1-½ inches thick. Top with remaining cake layer. Chill at least 1 hour.

Prepare frosting. Combine corn syrup, water and butter in small saucepan. Bring to boil; cook until butter melts. Remove from heat. Add chocolate bits; stir until chocolate melts. Cool at room temperature. Spread over top of cake. Chill until frosting sets.
