I want to make some MMF and I love the recipe here.....can I just substitue 3/4 - 1 c. of the powdered sugar with dutch processed cocoa for chocolate MMF? Or is there a whole other element I am missing, lol? thx
I'm not sure which of the MMF recipes that you're referring to. A recipe that I use has 16 oz of marshmallows and 2 lbs of powdered sugar (so that you can adjust the measurements below according to your recipe). Most recipes have similar quantities to this.
I typically add 1 ounce of melted semi-sweet chocolate to the marshmallows once the marshmallows are melted and then I add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder to the powdered sugar. (Dutch processed should be fine.)
I use that same recipe too...what kind of chocolate fondant does that give you? Is it that rich, dark brown or just a bit tan? I am looking to alter the MMF recipe from here - the one that is just marshmallows, PS, water and vanilla and somehow add whatever kind of chocolate to make that rich Choco-pan stuff. I just don't like the other MMF so I figured why not start with what I like instead of using the ones that call for glucose and such...thanks
It's a tan color, not a dark brown.
