There's nothing more spectacular that watching oozing chocolate
pour out of a perfectly baked fondant! So, let me tell you that when
you add peanut butter and raspberry jelly, you can only imagine the
These are so easy to make and are truly appreciated by all dinner
guest! You can also easily make these without any gluten, wheat or
refined sugar. Simple swap your cake flour with a gluten free flour
mix and replace your sugar with coconut sugar or xylitol!
I used the no added salt/sugar peanut butter range from
Woolworths, as well as their always-perfect fresh raspberries.
For the cocoa powder, use a good quality dark cocoa content, such as
NOMU's traditional cocoa- it makes a delicious difference.

C H O C O L A T E F O N D A N T S
NOMU cocoa powder (for dusting)
200g dark chocolate (70% min) OR NOMU's Decadent Hot Chocolate Pieces
100 unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
110g caster sugar
35g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp sugar free peanut butter per serving (4 tsp altogether)
1 tsp fresh, chopped raspberries per serving (4 tsp altogether)
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Grease 4 dariole moulds and neatly dust them with cocoa powder.
2. Place the chocolate and butter in a pot over a gentle heat and stir until the chocolate has melted. Allow to cool to room temperature.
3. Put the eggs, egg yolks and sugar into a mixing bowl and stir until combined. Stir in the melted chocolate and then fold in the flour.
4. Spoon the mixture into the dariole moulds halfway. Carefully add peanut butter and chopped raspberries into the centre of the mould. Spoon the remaining fondant mixture over this to seal. Fill to just below the top line as the fondants will rise significantly. Give the lip of the mould a gentle wipe to ensure the fondants rise perfectly.
5. Place in the fridge for an hour then bake for 15 minutes or until the fondants have risen and spring back to the touch. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool for a minute or two so that the moulds are easier to handle.
6. To remove, gently loosen the edges with a knife, then place a plate on top and gently flip over. Dust with cocoa powder to serve.
