So made 2 batches of chocolate MMF - first was too dry so I made the 2nd batch with much less icing sugar and kneeded them together. I added alomst 1/2 lb of crisco while kneeding it.

Could the cocoa be drying it out?

What would you do...

start over and make 2 more batches?

or

make 1 new batch of vanilla with much less icing sugar and add in 1/2 of the original chocolate fondant?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
