I MADE THE CHOCOLATE MMF TWICE AND BOTH TIMES, IT WAS WAY TOO HARD AND WOULDN'T LET ME ROLL. IT KEPT FALLING APART. WHAT DID I DO WRONG? I MADE THE MMF AND IT WAS PERFECT.
I had the same problem when I made it. Hopefully someone can tell us what we did wrong!
The first time I made it, it was like that too. Then the second time, I followed the directions to the letter and didn't have a problem.
When MMF is that way, I add more sugar, then a little more shortening.
I KNOW YOU CAN USE DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF THE COCOA AND CHIPS. I ALWAYS USED THE MAXIMUM. HOW MUCH DID YOU USE? DID YOU USE THE RECIPE ON THIS SITE?
I used a MMF recipe that involved adding melted chocolate. It made a wonderful tasting lump of something I couldn't roll out or cover a cake with.
I tried again with the basic MMF recipe and replaced 3/4 cup of the powdered sugar with special dark cocoa powder and it worked great. I did add a tiny bit of glycerine to it just in case.
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'LL HAVE TO TRY THAT THIS WEEK!
