Chocolate Fondants

These are a Gordon Ramsey recipe but with a little less swearing (just). Actually, they a neat, freezable dessert and go well with a little whipped cream. In good diabetes fashion, I cut the sugar by about 40% and you could probably go further - still the site says each fondant weighs in (before reducing) at 52g CHO (makes 9 fondants). Well, I got 10 from the recipe but they are big and it'd be reasonable to expect 12 or more, bringing the count below 40g (maybe 30g if you go easy on the sugar) - okay, these are a hard sell, but they are nice.
Depending on your oven, you'll want to give these about 12 minutes - any longer and you'll lose the gooey inside. They freeze really well in little ramekins and the microwave will resurrect some of the gooey insides if you want to cheat.
I used Dove's Farm gluten-free white flour which does the job well for things like this. Enjoy.
And (for an added bonus) if you're looking for something to use up the left-over egg whites, check out this recipe for Naim-naim cake. It's easy and makes a great change from meringues!
