Thanks for the bump! I am so confused! I have made MMF many times before and never seen this. . even wierder is that I made 3 batches and only the WHITE batch is coming out like this. Could it be the White White Coloring I am putting in it? Although I don't know how the coloring would cause little hard pebbles??

It happened to me once, I just kept kneading it, and and then let it sit for a few hours, kneaded it again and it was fine. good luck How big are the 'pebbles"?

they are tiny, if you look far away they look like thousands of little bubbles but then when you get closer they are a little off-white in color and hard.

Well hubby just went to the store for another bag of marshmallows and sugar, so here goes round #3.

I had the same problem once, when I used a store brand ps. Make sure it's not beet sugar (mine was), it needs to be real sugar cane sugar. I'm assuming that was my problem. Maybe it was yours?

I had that issue before but it was because the mmf went into the fridge and hardened the marshmallow. I had to microwave it again and it turned out ok.

I always allow my mmf to set over night (rest) before I use the next day any little hard pebble things have melted.

That's the same recipe I use, just made some....have it wrapped and resting for tomorrow.

Turns out it was the coloring! I made the 3rd batch without adding the white white coloring and it came out fine. . .that is so wierd!
