What recipe did you use? That might help if you post the recipe. I've seen different versions.

I've heard of it being sticky, but never really soupy. Perhaps you could cut back on the water?

how much and what liquids do you put in the MMF in your recipe?

and you only put two tablespoons of water in it? I don't have any idea what would make it soupy if that's all the liquid you used.

This is the mini recipe. Perhaps if you're going to play around you could try that. I've made it many times and it turned out well.

1 cup mini marshmallows
1 tbsp water
1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup powder sugar

I don't know why it's turining out soupy for you though. Sorry.
