I haven't used chocolate for under the fondant. For chocolate icing, I've melted bakers chocolate with a little creme and butter. I since have switched to high ratio shortening, it is the best for icing. I'd get advice from other to be sure on this one. Sorry I wasn't more help.

Flavoring icing is a very personal thing. You *can* play around with flavorings to come up with something you and your customers love.
Most recipes for icing do *not!* have enough flavoring in them. Use 2 Tablespoons of flavoring per batch of icing that uses 2 pounds of sugar.
Here is a great icing recipe - note the information about flavoring at the end.

Forgot to add flavoring to my choc. icing. I usually add rasberry as it has been the most popular for my clients, however many flavors are complimented with chocolate. Good luck.
