Rolled fondant filling (for chocolate bon bons)

Rolled fondant can be used to make the filling for many chocolate covered candies.

 To make a basic rolled fondant, you will need:

1 cup water
3 cups sugar
1/3 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla or other flavoring (use clear if you want white fondant)
food coloring (optional)

candy thermometer

Bring the water to a boil in a medium to large saucepan. Add the sugar and stir continually until it dissolves in the water. Continue to cook until it comes to a boil again. Add the cream of tartar and stir it in (it may boil up to the top of the pan); then allow it to continue to cook (without stirring any more) until the candy thermometer reads 234 degrees.

Spray a marble slab or a baking pan with cold water and pour the fondant onto the cool surface. Allow it to cool for several minutes until it holds a mark when you press the corner.

Use a firm spatula or candy scraper to work the fondant toward the center, mixing it until it turns white. Knead it until it is smooth. You can add food coloring, flavoring (such as extracts or liqueurs) or even bits of fruit or nuts.

Once you have added your color and flavoring, you are ready to make your fondant-filled chocolates.
