Chocolate Fondant is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazingly easy! I used this for my autumn wedding cake, 3 tiers, 16"square, 12"square and 8" square, and therefore need a LOT of this recipe. It was so easy to make and tastes like candy! Great recipe and people keep asking for more! In order to mix with the ready to use fondant quickly, I microwaved the chocolate mixture and the fondant for 15 seconds at a time until kneading was easier. This gave a greasy consistancy which went away once mixed completely. made life much easier the week of my wedding

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe! It is so easy to make and it tastes like a tootsie roll! I used it on a few of my cakes, for clients, and they have gone nuts over it. I wish more people would request chocolate fondant on their cakes! It's delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the chocolate mint flavoured candy melts to make this and it was very yummy. A little patience is required to incorporate all of the clay into the fondant, but so worth the effort. The fondant ends up being very workable and tasty!
