The Best Way To Serve Your Fondants

The good news is, they are great as they are.

You could pour over some pouring cream or just have it with ice cream. The difference in temperatures will add another level to your taste experience.

Adding custard will probably make the dessert a little too sweet but if you like stodgy desserts, then that will be perfect for you.

Either way, just enjoy and worry about the calories another time!

Fresh raspberries and raspberry sauce go really well with rich chocolate puddings.

Recipe Notes

Great news!

These can be frozen and saved for another day. Also, do not over bake! Normally they only need 9 minutes and this will give you a soft warm gooey chocolate middle but from frozen add an extra 5 minutes to the baking time.
