A petit gâteau (in French, small cake; plural: petits gâteaux), or chocolate fondant, is a dessert composed of a small chocolate cake with crunchy rind and mellow filling that is conventionally served hot with vanilla ice cream on a plate. In French, the terms for the chocolate cake are "gâteau fondant au chocolat" or simply "fondant au chocolat" ("chocolate chewy" or "chocolate melty").
The dessert has been popularized in New York City restaurants since the 1990s. Nowadays, variations of the cake and ice cream flavors have come to include fruits and even alcoholic beverages, such as whisky.
