The Chocolate Fondants may be served hot on
its own or with custard, whipped cream, ice cream and /
or berries. The Fondants may be dusted with icing sugar.
If your fondants stick to the tin/cup after baking, you
should try lining the tins/cups with aluminum foil and
grease the lined tins/cups well before use. You can also
use paper muffin bake cups.
You may use pudding/soufflee cups instead of
muffin cups and serve the fondants in the cups in
order to avoid the difficulty of removing the fondants
from the muffin cups.
You may add two tablespoons of orange liqueur and
finely grated rind of one orange. This gives a
delicious orange-chocolate flavor.
You may try adding some ground cinnamon and nutmeg
or cloves to the chocolate and butter mixture.
You may add some mint flavoring.
Serving suggestion: serve with an orange and star
anise ice cream.
