Chocolate Head

Ever since I emigrated to the US about 16 years ago I’ve missed this indulgent little delicacy. The bitter chocolate shell is the perfect companion for the sweet, gooey, fluffy white interior, and the cookie it rests on offers a delicious crunchy counterpoint.

I had been experimenting with home-made marshmallow and one batch came out delicious but a bit too sticky — perfect for the “tête choco” or chocolate heads I’d grown up with — so I tried reproducing them. It looked nothing like the smooth, commercially made ones pictured here, but turned out to be even more scrumptious.

Here is the detailed recipe.
