Cooking Instructions for Hot Chocolate Fondant

Where to buy the ingredients to make a hot chocolate fondant

Most ingredients can be purchased from your local grocery store and supermarkets. However, look for the best main ingredients when making desserts. I favour this version of the Lindt dark chocolate, you will need a couple of bars (depending on how much you are making).


  • Make sure the water in the pan doesn’t touch the bowl!
  • Make sure you line the moulds with butter and cocoa powder for a perfect finish!

As you are in sweet tooth mode, you may want to try Langtry Manor's chocolate brownie pecan tart recipe. I hear it's a small slice of heaven.
