Chocolate fondant

I used to work with MMF but I had a lot of children cake and I did not like the idea to give them so many not-natural ingredients, I tried a new fondant recipe based on chocolate. This is a easy fondant recipe.


Amount Ingredient
2 bars ( 100 gr each) dark chocolate
4 tablespoons glucose
2-3 tablespoons glycerin
powder sugar around 5 cups


Method: 1.On a Bain-Marine I put the glucose and the glycerin together for 2 minutes, after that I add the chocolate that I chopped and I leave it on the stove until is melt. 2. I am waiting to chill a little and I start adding sugar 3. It has to be almost the same with a regular fondant but softer. TIPS: if is to dry and more glucose and put it back on Bain-Marine If is not pliable add an extra tbs of glycerin. You can substitute glucose with honey. It taste amazing and IS CHOCOLATE!!!! I tried with white chocolate to but the color is ivory and not pure white, but if you need a colored fondant you can color it with great succes. I hope you like it!

Thank you for the recipe, I do need to ask is a Bain-Marine the same as a double boiler? I have never heard of one of these. Can't wait to try it. Love chocolate,
Same as doble boiler :)
what if no double broiler? can i still make it
yes, but very low fire
You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave, chop it up and microwave 20 seconds at a tim, stir after every term. Stop while there are still a few little junks in it so it doesn't burn.
