If you have it white, I suggest turn it brown and then black.
Use powder sugar or cornstarch to get rid of the 'stickiness' that will definitely happen.

And welcome!!

I've actually just made my first batch of chocolate fondant.
I don't know if its going to roll out the same as the other MMF but i'll know by tonight.

I just used Chocolate marshamallows and the rest of the recipe is the same except i added 2 small hershey bars one dark and one milk chocolate. I had it in the pantry so thought i'd throw it in.

I added most of the colour to the wet mixture. I can still taste a little bitterness but it tastes way better than starting from white and going to black.
