Chocolate Fondant Dessert Recipe Sep 26, 2013 yumme Desserts, Recipes 0 Chocolate fondant is an excellent choice for dessert that anyone can love. It’s simple to make, only takes a few ingredients and can be the perfect complement to a nice dinner made at home. Even if you’re not familiar with baking you can easily whip this up. It’s worth trying out if you want something hot, gooey and definitely impressive to all that will eat it! IngredientsDirections 8 oz butter (unsalted) 5 large eggs 8 oz sifted flour 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 14 oz baker’s sugar 9.5 oz dark chocolate Cocoa powder Melted butter Tools: 8 ramekins or small bowls Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and while it’s heating up melt a small amount of butter. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush the butter inside of the ramekins or bowls. After this, pour a little bit of cocoa powder inside of the ramekins and shake out the excess. Set these aside and put a saucepan over medium-low heat. Melt together the butter and chocolate slowly so that neither of them bubble or burn. If your chocolate does burn it’s essential to start this process over, as it won’t taste very good after this happens. When in doubt turn our heat down and go as slowly as you are comfortable with. After the chocolate and butter have melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract along with the sugar. Mix gently until completely combined and then allow the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes. While cooling, place your eggs in a separate bowl and whisk them together. Then add them slowly into the chocolate, stirring in a little bit add a time. Once all of the eggs are combined, use a spatula to fold in the flour that you sifted earlier. Sprinkle in a little bit of salt to add flavor and gently stir until everything is smooth and there are no lumps or bumps. Pour the chocolate mixture into a pourable measuring cup and fill each of the ramekins 2/3 full. Clean up any spills on the bowls and then place into your preheated oven for 12 minutes on the dot. Make sure you do not go over or under this time, as it’s an exact science to make sure the dish turns out perfectly. When the twelve minutes is up, take the ramekins out and use a sharp knife to run around the inside edges. This will loosen up the cake inside so that you can tip it over and place onto a serving plate. Once it’s ready to serve add a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and enjoy! You can also sprinkle with powdered sugar or additional cocoa powder to add color to the dish. When you bite in it should be hot and gooey, which is why it pairs so nicely with ice cream. Tips: Make sure you preheat your oven and put a timer on while the fondants are cooking. If you cook them too much or too little they won’t turn out correctly. Greasing your ramekins is important, so do not skip this step.
