This is a great Chocolate Fondant recipe. Pour over the top of cakes or petits fours to make a perfectly smooth and glossy surface. Excess fondant can be stored, tightly covered, in refrigerator for weeks. Reheat to use again.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 6 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 5 fluid ounces water
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
In a saucepan, combine confectioners' sugar, water and corn syrup. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches a temperature of 92 degrees F (33 degrees C.) Remove from heat and stir in chopped chocolate and almond extract until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
