i put like a tablespoon and about 2 tablespoons of corn syrup and it really worked well. the MMF didn't dry out while i was rolling it yet it didn't stick. it was the most perfect MMF batch i've ever made.

I add a teaspon of glycerine to the bowl of marshmellows before melting them in the microwave.The glycerine helps to keep the MMF soft.

I don't use any in mine, but I might try it now. I do add 2 tablespoons of corn syrup.

at what point when you are making the mmf do you add in the glyercin and corn syrup?

after i melted the marshmallows, i'd put the flavoring and color if i'm using some then the corn syrup and glycerin and then proceed with the PS.

i really liked it because i didn't have to put a LOT of PS. the MMF was pliable enough and yet when i was done making my roses and set them to dry, they hardened over night.

no problem. i think i read it on here before too. i knew from rhonda's recipe that adding corn syrup is good and i read somewhere else (a thread here i'm 98% sure) that glycerin helps so i just added both since i had them in the pantry. =D

let us know how it works for you.
