I am making chocolate MMF for the first time and was just wondering if it is stored the same as regular MMF? How long ahead of time can I make it? I have a lot to make!!
Anything else I should know about choc. MMF? Does it "work" the same as MMF?

I tried a recipe that I found here that used melted squares of chocolate. I must have done something wrong, because I ended up with a large, chocolate brick. A very yummy one, but not something workable.

After that, I tried again and used 3/4 cup special dark cocoa powder instead of 1 cup of the powdered sugar. That worked just fine. It was a little dry so I added some glycerin. I treated it just like regular MMF as far as storage and using it.

I love to use choco MMF....this is what I do...

Regular MMF....

one bag melt it for 1:30
mix it till its all liquid Marshmallow,
then I start to add my COCOA POWDER (nestle)

I usually use half of the container....

then I use a little of pwd sgr.....

once it's on the table I make sure to use alot of shortnening just because chocoMMF tends to be dry. I can store it up to one week and It comes out just fine...but I try do leave it a bit gooey...that way its not hard and it starts to tear when you start to knead it....hope this helps and good luck to you!!

A great tip I got is to use chocolate syrup because it is soooo dry.

I was thinking of using choc syrup, so I think I will experiment a little with it before I actually need it. I definitely will try the dark cocoa!!
