CBD-Infused Chocolate Fondant Recipe

Happy World Chocolate Day!

Love Hemp Brand Ambassador, and food fanatic, @pescatarianldn creates this CBD-Infused Chocolate Fondant masterpiece, to celebrate World Chocolate Day!

Chocolate, while seen as a treat for many, is a staple in her household, especially our CBD infused chocolate balls.  Made from 64% coca and infused with 50mg CBD, deep and rich in flavour, yet somehow irresistibly smooth and mellow, our chocolate balls really are the perfect way of treating yourself to a delicious dose of CBD.  

To make this little bit of food heaven, follow the recipe below:

CBD-Infused Chocolate Fondant

INGREDIENTS (4 servings)

100g Love Hemp® CBD Dark Chocolate Balls, 25mg per serving

100g Unsalted Butter, diced

2 Free range eggs

1 Egg yolk

60g Fine Caster sugar

30g Flour, sieved

Butter, for greasing the pudding moulds

Cacao Powder, for dusting the pudding moulds

 

Serving suggestions: Whipped Cream or Ice cream 

*You will need 8cm x 5cm Pudding Moulds

 

METHOD

  1. Butter the pudding moulds and dust generously with cocoa powder
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter over a bain-marie (place the chocolate and butter into a heat proof bowl that sits over a pan of very gently simmering water. The water level should not touch the glass). Stir until smooth and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together for 5-10 mins until the mixture is pale and has doubled in volume. An electric whisk is handy here.
  4. Pour in melted chocolate and fold gently until combined.
  5. Gently sift in the flour and fold again until combined.
  6. Divide the chocolate mixture evenly into the buttered and dusted moulds.
  7. Refrigerate the moulds for an hour or up to 7 hours if you are making the puddings in advance.
  8. Bake the puddings at 200°C for exactly 12 minutes and leave to stand for 1 minute. If you are using a thinner mould, you will need to bake the puddings for a minute or two less.
  9. Turn the puddings out onto small plates and dust with a little cacao powder. Enjoy!
