How do you make chocolate fondant? Or where do you buy it? Or do you just use brown and color the white fondant?

I would personally just buy it. Try That's where I get my Satin Ice fondant.

I've also used Satin Ice chocolate fondant and like it. It's quite a relief to just open it and use it without the endless working in of the food color.

And here's a tip: You can knead in white MMF to the brown and it will go much further! The SI brown is so dark it's almost black.

But, if you want to try your own brown MMF, here's a method I've waiting to try:

Chocolate/brown MMF:
16 oz mini-marshmallows (NOT Jet-Puffed. I use Wal Mart brand)
2 T water
**Grease a micro-safe bowl, add MMs, sprinkle with water, melt 1 minute, stir**
1 oz melted semi-sweet chocolate
1 T glycerine
1 t popcorn salt (or grind regular salt in a coffee grinder - you'll get crystals if you don't)
2 t Nielsen Massey's chocolate extract
Half a jar of Wilton brown food color
2 T cocoa powder
2 lbs powdered sugar (again, store brands tend to be better for MMF - more cornstarch?)

Start by stirring in 1/2 c of PS to absorb moisture before dumping in more to help avoid clumps. Each time you add PS make you you stir it well so that it's well absorbed before adding more. When you are down to the last 1/3 of the bag, dump it in and knead with your greased hands. Form a ball and wrap with plastic wrap to rest at least 4 hours. To re-soften, place it in the micro a few seconds at a time and knead. If it is too sticky, knead in cornstarch a little at a time.
