My chocolate fondant is in need of some serious help. It's very brittle and cracks when I roll it out. I tried adding some crisco. Didn't really help much. It just continued to tear. It was almost like a pie dough rather than a fondant. The recipe I used had melted chocolate chips in it. I've also used a recipe that has a choco powder. They were both very difficult to work with. Any suggestions, please? Thanks so much!
can you tell us the recipe that you did use. That might help .
The recipe I used was one I got off CC:
True Black MMF
* 6 oz. of semi sweet chocolate chips (about half of a bag)
1 bag of mini marshmallows
3 tbsp. of clear Karo syrup
3 tbsp. water
1 1lb. bag of powdered sugar
gel black food coloring
1. Put your marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl, add the water, and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir mixture, and microwave for another minute. When marshmallows come out they will be HOT, stir again, scraping the sides with a scraper. Immerdiately add your chocolate chips, and stir until the chips are completely melted. Add your karo syrup and stir again this time with a butter knife, making sure that all of your syrup is incorporated. Add a good amount of black gel food coloring, and stir again with your knife, making sure that you scrape around the edges. Once your mixture is the blackest black that you can get, (I added about 1-2 tsp. of the gel coloring) then add about half of your bag of powdered sugar, and stir until the mixture is thick, with your knife. Grease your hands liberally with Crisco and add the rest of the powdered sugar* to the bowl. Knead your fondant until all of the powdered sugar is gone. Store for up to a month wrapped in plastic wrap, sealed in a gallon Ziploc, and stored in an airtight container.
3. *Depending on the humidity in your area it might take a little more powdered sugar, or even a little less to get the consistancy of fondant.
It did not work out so well for me...
I used a regular MMF recipe and added Coco Powder (about a 1/2 cup)in place of some of the powdered sugar,and a tablespoon of light corn syrup.
Did it have the same texture as regular MMF?
yes it did,let me know if the link does not work
