I have some leftover dark chocolate fondant - any clever ideas on what I can use this for? Candies or something?
That will be fantastic for chocolate covered cherries. Last year I learned thru another member to make these adorable mice. I'm sure there will be a pic somewhere on this site. hehe! Anyway it starts off with the stemmed cherries being wrapped with fondant then dipped in chocolate.
If you don't want to store it for that long just make the cherries alone.
And don't forget to send me some! lol
Personally I'd just wrap it up tight and freeze it til I need it again! Fondant keeps for quite a long time in the cupboard but even longer if you freeze it.
If not, then maybe try rolling it out thin and cutting with the same shape you cut out some cookies - fondant is really tasty on sugar cookies.
Can you melt fondant?
I have read that you can add a little bit of cream or liquid and it will soften it. I personally have not tried it.
You can melt it by microwaving it, but I am not sure if it will liquify as much as turn superduper soft. I've never tried it!
