Chocolate Orange Fondants

I have been wanting to try making chocolate fondants for a while now. Thankfully baking alongside The Great British Bake Off has given me the perfect excuse.

Chocolate Orange Fondants




Thanks to a buy one get two free offer at Tesco, I have a few chocolate oranges in the house. I therefore decided that whilst following the BBC Good Food Recipe I would substitute the dark chocolate with chocolate orange.

I used some pyrex pampered chef glass bowls to bake my fondants in and this worked well.

I slightly undercooked my fondants. This is probably because I put them in the freezer for 30 minutes before cooking. They weren't frozen but could have done with 14-15 mins rather than the 13 that i opted for. There were no complaints from my boys though and little man graded them 10/10! This recipe will make 4.

To make the fondants:
  • 100g chocolate orange
  • 100g butter

  • 2 eggs and 2 yolks
  • 100g plain flour
  1. Melt 50g butter. Coat the mould with butter and place in freezer to harden.
  2. Coat the moulds with some more melted butter and then dust with cocoa powder. Place back in the freezer.
  3. Melt the chocolate orange and 100g butter together (I did this in the microwave.)
  4. Whisk the eggs and caster sugar together together.
  5. Sieve the flour and add to the egg and sugar.
  6. Fold the melted chocolate and butter into the flour mixture.
  7. Divide between the 4 moulds and place back in the freezer for 30mins.
  8. Pre heat the oven to 200C. Bake for 14-15mins
  9. Leave for 1 min and then turn out. Enjoy!
