Yet, another silly question from the newbie here. When making MMF, what mixing method is used before kneading. I mean, right after you take the marshmallows out of the microwave, you add the melted chocolate, color, or whatever you want to add to it and mix it with a spoon right? How about when you add it to the powdered sugar and the cocoa? Also a spoon and then knead it. So, I take it a hand mixer is not used, right? I apologize about the dumb question, but I don't have the slightest clue... icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif Also, does anyone know where I can find the Kraft "Choco"mallows? I read on the Wilton forums that an easy way to make chocolate MMF is by using chocolate marshmallows instead of regular ones...just a thought...

Thank you Jan. You're always so helpful. I got a little discouraged though, not having a kitchen aid and all, but I guess I can do it by hand. Before I start kneading, I mix with wooden spoon right? Or what whould you recommend. Now, for chocolate MMF, at the time of adding the flavoring, is this when I would skip the vanilla and add the melted chocolate?

Try this, melt your MM when they are melted and mixed with a spoon add 1/2 cup of sifted cocoa powder right to the MM. Mix. If you need it darker add more cocoa and some browm color. then I pour the mixture right on my counter that has the PS in a pile with a large well so the MM wont run off. Then i just keep folding it over from all sides adding more and more PS until its the right consistancy. You can start to kneed when it starts to get firm.
