This works pretty well. I found that by waiting for the fondant to cool down a bit before pouring help with consistency.

I use this recipe for petit fours and it works really well to coat the sides. The first time I made it I was careful with the temperature but now I just stir it until it gets to be the right con...

I'm actually wavering between three and four stars for this recipe. I used a candy thermometer and was shocked at how far over 92 degrees I had to heat this fondant up. Eventually though, it s...

I made this recipe the first time and it came out ok. I thought about it and read the other reviews and made it again with a couple of changes and it came out PERFECT! I cooked the sugar/water/...

I found this to be a great recipe for covering a cake maybe, but for petit fours, I had to add some milk to it to thin it out a bit. I didn't find it thin enough to pour over petit fours.

the chocolate doesn't ever melt so that it's uniformly brown, but rather white with brown speckles. Tastes fine, but I won't use this again.
