Indulge in Team Khoollect’s favourite dessert delight; dark chocolate fondants! We’ve made the ooey-gooey dessert even more moorish by using good-quality dark chocolate and elevating the rich flavours with just a pinch of sea salt. It’s amazing how much of an impact just a little good quality sea salt can have on this dish, but it really does make all the difference so it’s worth investing in.

Perfect to share with friends…or an evening in by yourself, no-one will know if you don’t tell them.

Recipe sounds great but am doing keto Low carb hi fat program. Wondering if you think this might work with alternative sweetener such as Xylitol or Erythritol and almond or coconut flour?
I may try a half recipe, play with it and see what happens. Is essentally a mug cake. May try one in oven and one in microwave. Hhhmmmmmm.

Hi Ellen,
I have absolutely no experience with baking with alternative sweeteners so unfortunately I can’t say. Do let me know how it goes. Thanks
