– 1/4 c. heavy cream
– 3 oz. bittersweet chocolate
– 3 oz. semisweet chocolate
– 4 T. unsalted butter
– 2 T. roasted garlic, minced
– powdered unsweetened cocoa

Preparation:

Cut the top off of a whole head of unpeeled garlic. Put the garlic in the center of a piece of foil, drizzle with cooking oil, and wrap tightly. Roast in a 400ºF oven for about 45 minutes until the garlic is browned and softened.

Once garlic has cooled, boil cream in a small heavy pan until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate and return to low heat, stir until chocolate melts. Whisk in softened butter and roasted garlic. When smooth, pour into a shallow bowl and refrigerate until firm, about 40 minutes.
