Thanks for taking the time to read my post! I just made Chocolate MMF for the first time. I used the recipe from CC. It tastes GREAT (like a Tootsie Roll), BUT...the consistency is not quite right. I'm not sure how to explain it... It's not too dry, but it "breaks apart" when I try to roll it. I was thinking maybe add more corn syrup??? ANY ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
I would add glycerin, until you get the right consistency (if you want to fix the one you already have) I sounds like you add to much Powder Sugar, that happen to me when I star using MMF and I add that and then was great, you can always use crisco.
I hope this help
When I make my ChocMMF, I sift 1/2 cup cocoa powder into the melted marshmallows and stir well before I pour onto my PS. Sometimes I use more cocoa, when I so I just add a little more water to the MM. I think I will try the glycerin.
Thanks for responding. I didn't use as much PS as the recipe called for, so I don't think that's it. And I sifted and stirred the cocoa powder, like you suggested, cathie. So I'm not sure what went wrong.
I don't have glycerin. What do you think of using more corn syrup? I need to finish this one tonight.
If you have crisco or any vegetable shortening you can add it little by little, when you add cocoa powder you have to reduce the amount of sugar powder, I never try the watter, when that happen to me I add corn syrup but it was so sticky that is why I use glyserine and it work perfect for me.
