The Topkiss Burger or Mohrenkopf Brötchen 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 roll that had a Mohrenkopf (chocolate marshmallow or Topkiss) in the middle. That was our snack for school. Everyone loved it.
Mohrenkopf or Topkiss is a sweetened cream on a soft waffle base and coated with a thin layer of chocolate. A little bit similar to marshmallows but much softer.
How to Make the Topkiss Burger
– 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.
