No holiday would be complete without this chocolate butter cream recipe.
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup glucose
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2½ ozs baker's premium chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ pound baker's "dot" chocolate
Instructions
  1. Put the sugar, water, glucose and butter over the fire; stir until the sugar is melted, then cook to the soft ball degree, or 236° F.
  2. Pour on a damp marble and leave until cold; then pour on the Premium Chocolate, melted over hot water, and with a spatula turn to a cream.
  3. Cover the chocolate fondant with a bowl and let stand for thirty minutes.
  4. Knead well and set over the fire in a double boiler; add the vanilla and stir until melted.
  5. The mixture is now ready to be dropped into small impressions in starch; when cold and brushed free of starch dip in "Dot" Chocolate.
  6. When dropping the chocolate mixture into the starch it should be just soft enough to run level on the top. If too soft it will not hold its shape in coating.
