I found these molds online (http://www.pcb-creation.fr/) and had to have them. I suppose they appeal to an inner child, because everyone who saw them commented on their cuteness... and I have to agree, they are adorable, and I do not use that term frequently . They are also very time consuming to get just right.
The question was what to fill them with. Since the exterior had to be a chocolate shell, they could pretty much contain anything. So, since I have a fondness for real well made classic cakes, I decided to fill these guys with the components of a German chocolate cake (which is not German at all, it is in the realm of classic American cakes).
I almost didn't want to eat them... but they were delicious.
