“This recipe is from posted by Michele D Foster. They have other chocolate fondant recipes on their site, so if this doesn't suit your fancy, head there! The color was a nice chocolate brown (imagine that!) and it looked great on my cake! I thought it was quite nice tasting as well. I used one 2 lb. bag of powdered sugar and it seemed to work well.”
1 9x13 sheet (depending on how you roll!)
