chocolate fondant

I made chocolate fondant for the first time today. I must admit that it's not my favorite dessert, but since Sølve loves it so much (he doesn't really have a sweet thooth) I thought I would give it a try.

I used this quick and simple recipe. The first batch was no success. I used muffin cups that were too small, so the fondants turned out over-cooked and weird. The second batch that I baked in ramekins was almost perfect (photo above), but I would like the centre to be more runny. Also I think they tasted a little dull. Maybe this Gordon Ramsay recipe is better?

Do you have a good chocolate fondant recipe?

Btw, I know we need vanilla ice cream with the fondants next time. Mmmm!


  1. This recipe for molten chocolate cake is similar and pretty decent. Yeah, it is from Gwyneth Paltrow's site, but it still works.

  2. oh my these look simply amazing! i don't know a recipe but will send it to you if i find one!

  3. db - Thanks for the recipe. It looks rather similar to the one I used.

  4. These ones are good...lovely and dark and melty :)

  5. I love Nigellas fondant recipie. Try some home made coconut ice and fresh raspberries or "rørte bringebær" to go with it. Yummy!
