I learnt to bake these little dark chocolate fondants with a white chocolate heart at a Parisian cookery school.

Back in the days when I wasn’t a mum (don’t listen to my children it did happen !!!), I attended my friend’s Natacha hen do in Paris. As part of the celebration we attended a cookery class. I loved it. To the ones thinking  “so as she could prepare nice little dishes to her husband once they were married” I would answer that they were both fond of cooking 🙂    

Anyway these little fondants are so hard to resist… the initial recipe featured a white chocolate sauce as a side however vanilla ice cream (or maybe even white chocolate ice cream) is to me the perfect match!

They would make a perfect Valentine’s Day treat. If you are in Valentine’s Day mode, you should check out this post too: What’s cooking for Valentine’s Day? . 

Bon appétit!
