Chocolate fillings

Post by gardenlaw » Thu Jul 28, 2011 8:42 am

I can now successfully make chocolates in a mould that look like proper chocolates. I use excellent rigid moulds from Vantage House which I buy secondhand. I tried silicon moulds but they are only good for baking. Now I am looking for help with the fillings. Has anyone a good fondant recipe that remains soft enough to pipe into the chocolate shell?

I once made a yummy filling with nutella, icing sugar and butter. I don't have a recipe, I tend to throw things in a bowl until the consistency is right and then I either get things deliciously wrong or deliciously right.
But nutella makes such a nice cream filling or cake frosting, better than melted chocolate, but that's just my opinion.

You're slipping Will. I thought you'd have baked more than that. They sound lovely though, send one down the wire. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

Love the Nutella idea, Will. Must try it and report back. World Nutella Day! Never knew there were so many recipes using Nutella.
