Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fondant

Updated: Apr 7, 2020

A chocolate fondant is a classic, rich, chocolaty melt in the mouth dessert which quite simply tastes like happiness, somewhere between a chocolate cake and a soufflé. This version has an added spin with the addition of peanut butter, which makes this classic dessert even better. It is simple to cook, not requiring any super complicated techniques and has a very short cooking time. It is so easy to make, why not give it a try? I have served it with some of my homemade dessert treats, a strawberry coulis, chocolate soil, coffee flavoured white chocolate mousse and some sliced strawberries for a bit of freshness.


40g salted butter

50g dark chocolate (70% or higher cocoa solids)

60g smooth peanut butter

100g caster sugar

2 medium eggs

40g plain flour

handful of chopped salted peanuts (for garnish)

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 2 people (makes 2 fondants)


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180c

  2. Melt the butter, chocolate and peanut butter in a pot on a low heat, be careful not to burn

  3. Remove from the heat and add the flour, eggs and sugar and whisk in

  4. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to cool down

  5. Meanwhile, line two baking rings (8cm diameter, 4cm high, or something similar) with baking paper and place them on a sheet of baking paper in a baking tray (see picture below). Put the paper into the rings loosely, no need to butter the rings as the fondant mixture will hold it to the edges

  6. Pour the cooled fondant mixture into the rings

  7. Cook in the oven for 10 minutes (until it no longer looks liquid on the top, might be a little less than 10 minutes)

  8. Serve immediately after cooking, they are best served hot!
