I just made her fondant recipe yesterday. YUM! I tried making fondant a couple months ago and it was really gross, so I was a little hesitant to try again. But after reading such good reviews on her recipe, I tried it yesterday and love it! It was not nearly as hard to make as I thought too. Anyway, is there a way to make a chocolate version of this yummy fondant?

I hope someone else can answer this question. I read a post yesterday about white chocolate fondant and a recipe was given. I compared it to Michele Foster's recipe and it was identical except that 6 oz. chopped white chocolate was added to the hot liquid. If you can add white chocolate, it seems logical that you could add another kind of chocolate instead of white chocolate. I just don't know how much of a chocolate flavor you would get by doing it that way.

I actually read about making a chocolate version of Michelle Foster's fondant a while back. I wrote "1 cup of chocolate chips" on a sticky note and didn't write how to deal with them! I'm assuming you'd melt them in the hot liquid like you would with a white chocolate recipe. I heard the flavor is great and the color is a lighter brown.

Yep! All you do is add some chocolate chips to the cooking part of the recipe. A little more glycerin might be needed if it becomes too stiff. It does make a light chocolate color, but tastes great. If you need the color to be darker, then just add some brown food color. The gel has glycerin in it, so be careful about the consistency if you make it dark.

It's great to read how well liked this recipe is.

Thank you for the info! I have been wanting to make chocolate fondant for about a year now, and have yet to do so. Now I think I will try it this weekend. icon_smile.gif

I made this last weekend for a wedding cakes (in my photos) and it came out great. Very easy to work with and tasted great. I did add some Choc Brown color to it to make it a little darker.
