You can put it in the fridge for a bit to firm it up.

Hey kokopuff,
I never made MMF but i would think microwaving it may soften it up a bit. You also may want to go to the internet to see if there is any help by googling "Tips and tricks to making MMF"
Goodluck

Sounds like it just needs more powdered sugar. Add a little at a time and need.

Thanks! It turned out much better.I think I added to much liquid to the first batch,that's the only thing I could figure happened to it.I added more ps until I ran out and that still didn't work,just one of those things I guess?

I had a bunch of MMF do that to me a while back too. The only thing different was the humidity that couple of days. I shouldn't have put as much water in it as i usually do, but i'm SO not used to humidity here (ID). It was SUCH a pain! I got it to work eventually, but i had to add a TON of ps!

you can still use the gum like batch put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds and add more sugar until it feels like play dough. mmf is tricky I add a tablespoon of shortening when I melt the marshmallows, it helps with rolling it out.

Good luck

i used to make mmf all the time, and it always turned out chewy and gooey, so finally i just gave up...so nowi use satin ice.

How is the taste of satin ice?Is it sweet like mmf?

MrsSoul:
This caught my attention as I'm about to make a batch of MMF. Do you ALWAYS put a tablespoon of shortening or only when the MMF starts acting up like this person's did? Well I guess so right? I mean you said when you're melting it, so I guess I'll give it a shot then. Thanks for the tip...not for me, but I'll follow it, lol. thumbs_up.gif
