Tip

To test if the fondants are cooked, press lightly on the top with your thumb, it should have formed a moist yet firm crust. Once you break into it, the middle will be a rich, chocolate liquid.

    Really good, it still surprises me how these are created. We loved them although I did find them super rich so will do half dark half milk chocolate next time. My hubby got the leftover one  the next day and said it was even better then.

    Submitted by JasperZee on 14. February 2014 - 18:05.

    I folded my muffin cases at the top to help shape the mixture & inserted pie weights so they would stay during baking - I have heart shaped fondants  Love

    Not all of them have as defined shape as the ones pictured but the thought is there!

    I made the mixture yesterday, refridgerated last night & baked this afternoon - they've turned out lovely, soft on the inside & cakey on the outside!

  • Hi Khv14,   The cooking time

    Submitted by Thermomix in Australia on 12. February 2014 - 17:46.

    Hi Khv14,

     

    The cooking time will vary depending on your oven and the size of your fondants. The fondants are done when they look cooked on the outside and have formed a crust but should still be gooey on the inside.

    This is the simplest and best fondant recipe we have tried!

    Submitted by Khv14 on 11. February 2014 - 23:02.

    Total disaster, I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out burnt on the outside and cold in the centre and when I turned them out they fell apart and the base stayed in the tin and the chocolate was complete liquid ran all over the bench... Tasted delicious but cannot serve them at all so pretty disappointed to waste all those ingredients tmrc_emoticons.(

    Made these tonight from the recipe I printed  before all the changes weresuggested...and I'm glad I did otherwise I would have been very confused about what to do and not do eg putting in the fridge. I also used gluten free flour, no extra eggs, no butterfly, no fridge and they were just fabulous and so easy and simple to make...cooked at 210 degrees for 10 minutes. Had no icecream so did TMX vanilla custard.

  • My family are all together

    Submitted by hydey on 30. March 2013 - 23:05.

    Party My family are all together for Easter and my daughter and son in law announced their pregnancy so at 9:30pm after a lovely dinner I decided to whip these up as a treat. The recipe made 8 which was how many we needed, I added a berry coulis and the response from the crowd was a resounding success. Oven temp fine, forgot to set timer so may have done 11 or 12 minutes but they were so delicious and took about 20 minutes all up...yum!

    Hi everyone, we're sorry that the sugar dropped off the recipe! It should be 80 grams and has now been updated.

    The reserved chocolate mix refers to the chocolate and butter that is melted and combined in steps 2 and 3 and then put aside.

    The cooking time will vary depending on your oven and the size of your fondants. The fondants are done when they look cooked on the outside and have formed a crust but should still be gooey on the inside.

    Response to mummybabs - My friend made the recipe before the sugar quantity was updated and found the method a little confusing but made it as written but had to guess the sugar quantity, she guessed 90g. She bought them over for me to try because she was dissappointed with the outcome as the outside was cooked but the centre was soft but not runny so they were a bit dry. We then made a second lot with the changes as written.

    This process was very easy, but mine really overlooked at this temperature. 230 degrees is a very hot oven!! I think I would try 180 - 190 degrees next time.

    Just curious as to why you felt the need to change the recipe completely? Did you try it first as written? I made them as per the recipe, simple as it is, and they were perfect! Maybe you should have just written your own recipe and submitted to the recipe community...

    Submitted by CherylJones on 4. February 2013 - 16:23.

    OK, so I think the problem is actually that of timing. I suppose all ovens are different but on my oven I had to lower the temperature to 190 C. Turned out beautiful!!

    You can freeze these! Just pop them into the oven and cook for 5 minutes more.

  • When I looked at this recipe

    Submitted by Therm-O-Queen on 3. February 2013 - 17:16.

    When I looked at this recipe and read the comments I decided to change 3 things in this recipe

    1. The amount of eggs

    2. Set the mixture in the fridge before cooking

    3. Lower the oven tempreature.

    They turned out fabulous - nicely cooked outside with a luscious runny chocolate middle tmrc_emoticons.)

    I placed the sugar (100g) in the TM and reduced to the texture of castor sugar, added the chocolate & grated then added the butter and melted all 3 together till smooth and shinny.  I placed the butterfly in the TM turned it to speed 4 and added 3 whole eggs one at a time then 3 egg whites, one at a time - the mixture was beautifully smooth and glossy. I added the flour then poured the mix into a linned muffin pan and placed it in the fridge for 2 hours to let the chocolate set - this is important so you achieve the right consistency after baking.  I heated the oven to 180 degrees and placed the tray in the oven straight from the fridge.  I cooked them for 15 minutes and removed them from the oven and allowed them to stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    Submitted by Jennifer Strike on 3. February 2013 - 07:57.

    I was making this recipe in front of guests last night - so easy.  Did not read through recipe prior to commencement and realised sugar was mentioned but no amount (refer to previous comments).  Asked my guests and we went for half the chocolate amount, ie 90gm of castor sugar and it worked very nicely.  Next time I might try and add one mor egg white to make it a little lighter.  But will definitely make it again.

    Hi jewel, thanks for the response. Yes, it was gooey, but not in a nice way. I expected it to be cooked around the edges and gooey inside. Instead it was just mushy all over. Like I said though, it could be my Thermomix acting up.

    As for your fondant not cooking properly was wondering if you have cooked a fondant before It should be all soft & gooy in the middle like melted chocolate. Get the impression this is how yours turned sounds perfect to me???

    Submitted by Adaless on 1. February 2013 - 22:20.

    As this recipe was "recipe of the month" I made the mistake of not reading the entire recipe before starting so had to guess the sugar ( I put in 100g) and didn't know how much "reserved chocolate" I had to add in step 6 so I left it out.  I cooked the fondants a few minutes more than suggested.  When I turned the fondants onto a plate there was about 2 tablespoons of melted butter and it didn't retain its shape. Once I poured the melted butter off the plate the taste of the Fondant was ok. Not sure if the reserved chocolate in step 6 would have made a difference. Disappointed that I wasted a block of chocolate.
