Chocolate fondant is almost impossible to get wrong, as long as you keep a close eye on your cooking times (similar to when making brownies).

Here’s some simple tricks to keep in mind before starting prep:

  • Use a high-quality bean-to-bar dark chocolate, of at least 70%

  • Respect the cooking times! – The weight of the ingredients and the oven temperature is also super-important!

  • Fondants will keep very well in the fridge or freezer. They can be made several hours ahead and chilled before cooking; or freeze, then cook for an additional 5 minutes from frozen.
