The New Year’s festivities couldn’t be complete without a chocolate fondant for dessert, right? Here in combination with caramel – a dream combo!

- Simple, festive and fantastically tasty. You could top with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and some raspberries to balance the sweetness, says Frida.

Ingredients for 4 fondants:

  • 150 g of butter
  • 200 g dark chocolate 70%
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 large eggs
  • 65 g granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cocoa
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 4 tablespoons Dulce de Leche

How to:

  1. Set the oven to 200°C over/under heat, and butter and sugar 4 ovenproof ramakins.
  2. Chop the chocolate and melt it together with the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Beat egg yolks, the two eggs and caster sugar until fluffy. Stir in the chocolate mixture, flour and cocoa, being very careful not to knock out the air. Pour the mixture into the moulds, filling to just over halfway. Pop a heaped tablespoon of dulche de leche into the centre of each mould and cover it with a little more batter.
  4. Bake on the rack in the middle of the oven. The time in the oven varies between 8–12 minutes, depending on the oven and the size of the moulds. They are ready when it starts to rise a little in the middle.
