Process chocolate in a food processor until the size of a small pellet. Warm cream in a small saucepan until very hot (but do not let it come to a simmer or boil). Pour the cream over the chocolate and process 5 to 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides and process 5 seconds more. Add butter and liqueur. Process until well combined. Add cocoa and blend until completely incorporated and smooth. Scrape down the sides and blend again until smooth. Cover a baking sheet with waxed paper and drop spoonfuls of the mixture.
