Chilli No. 5 - Chocolate Fondant

Mexican Chocolate Fondant

On today’s edition of Superfood Mondays, we have a recipe for an indulgent Mexican Chocolate Fondant – made with rich dark chocolate, cocoa powder, eggs, butter, and caster sugar, then baked to perfection in the oven. 
This recipe is full of dark chocolate, which is rich in antioxidants and nutrients. Dark chocolate is naturally high in iron, magnesium, manganese, and copper. It’s good for the heart, the skin, and may even help improve brain function.
For extra pizzazz, we’ve added Chilli No. 5’s Mexican Fury hot sauce. Not only does the hot sauce add a powerful burst of flavour, but it also adds extra health benefits to energise your day.

  • ramequin


  • 150 g Butter plus extra for greasing
  • 150 g Dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids) roughly chopped or broken into small chunks
  • 90 g Plain flour (25g for moulds, 75g for cake mix)
  • 25 g Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 3 Large egg yolks
  • 200 g Caster sguer
  • 1 bottle Chilli No. 5 Mexican Fury Hot sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 190 ̊C/170 ̊C fan/Gas 5

    moulds, place them on a baking sheet and set aside

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks and sugar until
    combined, then whisk this into the chocolate mixture, until smooth and well

    and only the middle moves a little, but edges are firm to touch.
