topkiss burger mohrenkopf

The Topkiss Burger or Mohrenkopf Broetchen in German was  and still is the ultimate snack for every German child. Everyone who grew up in Germany or has lived there for a while knows this snack. This German recipe - it is actually not a "real" recipe - brings back sweet memories of the childhood. Back then there was this little grocery store on my way to school, and every day we stopped to get a bun that had a Mohrenkopf (Topkiss) in the middle. That was our snack. Everyone loved it.
Mohrenkopf-Topkiss is a sweetened foam on a soft waffle base and coated with a thin layer of chocolate. A little bit similar to marshmallows but much softer.
They cannot be found in any American super market, the only place I know to get them is from the German deli online.

It is very simple:
- Get or bake your buns (see recipe for home made buns below) and cut them in half.
- Spread butter on one half (optional)
- Place a topkiss on the buttered half and cover it with the other half of the bun.
- Then with both hands squeeze the two bun halves together so the topkiss gets smashed.
