Has anyone ever used the recipe for MMF with the marshmallow fluff instead of using the microwaved recipe? I found a recipe for this on CC.
curious here.... icon_wink.gif

I haven't tried the fluff yet, only the microwaved mallows. I'm curious as to what the difference in the end result is. Is there a change in elasticity or anything like that? Thanks to anyone who can let me know!

I tried the version with the fluff one time about a year ago when I saw it in a family circle recipe. I had a really hard time with it. Mine turned out very tough, and I couldn't roll it out. That said, I might have added too much powdered sugar, even though I used the amount the recipe called for. icon_confused.gif When I found CC and the MMF recipe using melted marshmallows, I started using that and have never tried the other again. Just my experience....

I've tried the marshmallow fluff. I didn't get too far with it. It was very messy for me and all over the place. I followed the recipe exactly and I am never going to try that again.
I haven't tried the microwave recipe yet...

WOW!! icon_eek.gif you guys just made my day!! the only time I tried MMF it was such a mess that I've never tried it again but if I can use the fluff thing I think I can make it!!! party.gif
So, how much should I use, is a jar the same as a bag????

Can't wait to try it!

definately do not add all the PS that the recipe calls for. the recipe says to add gradually after a certain point. just add until its no longer sticky. dont dump it all in at once. goodluck with it. oh and i've since learned that its better to use shortening rather than cornstarch because after a while with the cornstarch the fondant will get dry and crumbly.

I used the recipe with the fluff and had no problems with it. I plan on using it again. I also added the powdered sugar slowly so it didn't get too dry. And I used the shortening also instead of corn starch. So pretty much what Debbie said.

making MMF is pretty messy the first little bit and if you are willing to give it a little love and tenderness the more you make it the less messy it tends to get ( you get better at it) it is deffinitly cheaper and tastes way better! I have not tryed the Fluff recepie yet but i have been wondering about using it for some time now. We always have Fluff on hand.( My youngest boy Auggie would die without Fluffer-nutter sandwiches)
That's my 2 cents.
