Why can't you just use the large marshmallows instead of the minis? Just weigh them so that you have the right amount?
i don't know if this is the "real" reason, but a couple times, i have used the larger marshmallows, and had terrible results. I love MMF, its all i make, it works fantastic for me, but i think the larger ones just don't melt as well, they always seem to have marshmallow dust on them, and it creates a lumpy mmf. like i said, there may be a different reason than that, but i have tried large marshmallows twice (thinking the first time was a fluke) and NEVER again, i had to just throw it out.
Hmmmm, I must have missed the part about using mini marshmallows,,, because I have only used the large size and it turns out great !?! I'm just new at it so I don't know any tricks or secrets, it just kind of worked. I just thought it was a fool proof recipe (lol).
how much water do you use with the large ones?
I've only ever used the big marshmallows - I might try the smaller ones.
But, I don't have any problems, so long as I sift my sugar. I use 2 TBS of water, 1 tsp of vanilla (clear), 1/4 cup of hi-ratio shortening, and 1/2 TBS of glycerine. Works wonderfully every time!
Feel free to pm me if you want more about the recipe.
thanks for the recipe. Its quite different than mine using the minis but maybe I'll give it a try.
