Chocolate Fondants by David Smyth CateringWishing you all a very happy Valentine’s Day for this Sunday – 14th February!

To mark the occasion, here’s a sweet treat to share with your loved one, or to devour by yourself while watching Netflix. 🙂

Chocolate Fondants

  • 150g Butter chopped
  • 150g plain flour
  • 150g dark chocolate (70% or better)
  • 150g castor sugar
  • 3 eggs and 3 egg yolks
  • 50g butter and cocoa powder for moulds
  1. Firstly get moulds ready, I used cups and they are perfect. Melt butter and using a pastry brush, brush 8 cups. Place them in the fridge for a few minutes, repeat and then dust with cocoa. A handy way of dusting is to put a spoon of cocoa in first cup and coat side and tip excess cocoa into next cup and so on!
  2. Melt butter and chocolate over a gentle heat, when done allow to cool slightly (10 mins)
  3. In a mixer, whip eggs, yolks and sugar together until the whisk leaves a trail. Sift in flour and beat it into the mixture.
  4. Pour in chocolate mixture ¼ at a time, mixing after each addition.
  5. Divide up the mixture into the moulds and allow to chill for 20 minutes or even overnight.
  6. Cook in a pre heated oven at 200⁰ for 11 minutes or until top is firm and mixture is coming away from sides.
  7. Allow to stand for a few minutes before serving, then serve with cream, ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and / or strawberries!!!

Enjoy – its my two daughters favourite dessert!!!
