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...
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!!
Thank you both so much!! Great advice!
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!!
I found some chocolate marshmallows. They work and taste great!
Where in the world did you find choc. MM???
