Fondant (Borstplaat in Dutch) is a traditional snack at Sinterklaas. And given my crush with chocolate seemed a recipe with chocolate fondant should be the one.
I am in possession of an official borstplaat form that I can use. They are not very expensive and for sale at the cooking store. But if you don't have one, then you can use cookie cutters. How larger the cookie cutters, how long it takes to dry the borstplaat.
I'm going to enjoy my borstplaat with a nice cup of tea. One of my most favorite treats at this time. Where are you going to enjoy tonight?
