try the organic marshmellows, they are not as sweet

You may try a little bit of popcorn salt (because it's finer) or dissolve a pinch of salt into the water before adding it to the marshmallows to melt.

Otherwise, it is marshmallows and sugar, it's sweet. ya know?

My recipe has a tsp. of lemon juice and tsp. salt in it. I think that helps with cutting down the sweetness. It's still sweet though. MM + PS = sweet icon_smile.gif kinda hard to get around that one.

Shoot I wanted to send you the link to the recipe but I cant find it now.

Hope that helps a little bit.

It has to be sweet because it's all sugar! icon_biggrin.gif
But I'll share with you an experience I had once. I was making my mmf, when suddenly I realised in the middle of the process, that I hadn't got enough sugar! I used cornstrach and I have to say it worked fine!
I don't remember how much of each it was, but I do remember pouring a lot of cornstarch!

MMF and MFF look similar, it's an easy mistake.
