Yield:
2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fondant
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 1/2 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 dozen fresh cape gooseberries, husks on

Directions

In the bowl of a small double boiler, combine the fondant and 2 tablespoons of the simple syrup. Heat the fondant, stirring with a wooden spoon. The mixture should be light but able to coat the back of a spoon. If the mixture is too thick, add some of the remaining simple syrup. In another double boiler heat the chocolate, stirring occasionally until the chocolate melts. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel back the husks from each berry. Holding the husks, dip each berry 3/4 of the way in the fondant. Place the berries on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until the fondant is firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Holding the husk, dip each berry in the melted chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Remove and serve on a serving platter.
