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.
