    Onehornedone's Note:

    This is an excellent fondant filling to be dipped in dark, milk or white chocolate. The recipe was handed down by my grandparents. This is a base and can be flavored before dipping. You will need a large marble slab or something comparable, a candy thermometer and candy paddles or a large spatula. The cooking time is short, but the molding takes some time. Do not stop molding once you start because if the sugar crystalizes, it will ruin the batch.
