OK--I printed out a copy awhile back and can't find it.
Does anyone have a recipe for petit four icing that uses candy melts in it. I have to make some brown colored petit fours this weekend and thought that would be the best recipe to use.

If you don't know that recipe, then what recipe do you use for petit fours?

I don't know about the icing. Would you mind sharing how you make petit fours? Is there a recipe on here?

I just bake a 1/4 sheet cake and sllightly freeze it. Then cut it into 24 square cakes. Cover with poured fondant icing.

Ok, I've never really had them and for some reason I thought they were torted things. How big is each one?

You can torte them, I prefer not to...don't like to do regular petit fours anyway. Historically, they are 1" square or 1 1/2" square. I cut mine about 2 1/4" square.

I did a search in the recipe section under Frosting for candy melts and 3 recipes popped up. But none of them were specifically for petit fours. and I assumed you wanted poured icing too and did a search for that, but none of those used candy melts.

I hope you found what you were looking for!

Hmmm... I made some chocolate petits fours a couple weeks ago, but I can't remember exactly how I did it. I use a recipe that calls for 2/3 to 3/4 cup water and 2 lbs of confectioners sugar. Heat until warm and then add 1 tsp almond flavoring right before pouring. I did half a batch of white petits fours and then I think I just added some cocoa powder to the remaining icing to make the chocolate petits fours. It was quite tasty! But next time, I think I'll make a seperate batch and add vanilla instead of the almond. I'm not sure how I feel about the chocolate/almond combo... like I said, it was good, but I'd like to try something else.
