Make it chocolate fondant and then add black food coloring.

Yep! I'd start with chocolate and then add black as well. If you have Americolor - their superblack is awesome! You don't have to use as much as you would if you were using Wilton. The color is just much stronger. Plus it comes in a nice squeeze bottle.

My question is does it matter if you use name brand verses store brand? I tried making MMF once and it came out kinda rubbery... Do you think if i used name brand it would help avoid that?

I have made 3 batches of MMF using Kraft Jet-Puffed MMs, and each time the fondant turned out beautifully. I think it depends who you ask...some people prefer store brand, others prefer name brands. For me, the Kraft brand worked best.

I also use chocolate fondant first. Never tried Americolor but think i might.
I also like using the Kraft marshmallows. I recently found them in a vanilla
caramel flavor. I loved it...I didn't need to add any food color and used it
to make the teddies on my daughters baby shower cake and the scooby cake I just finished. (Both are posted here) The fondant smells and tastes like caramel candy and comes out a tannish brown color.

Hmm sounds delicious think ill try it. I think i might also switch the brand of sugar and marshmallows im using and see if that makes a difference.

I want to try to use fondant. However I feel I am not ready for it.
I have never heard of chocolate fondant before. What is it, and where would I get a recipe for it?
