I haven't tried it. But I don't think it will work unless you dissolve it first, otherwise it will be grainy. I don't know what adding dissolved gelatin will do to the texture of the MMF....but I can't think of any reason it shouldn't work.

I think that i read somewhere on here that there is actually a recipe that uses flavored jello. Again, I think.....

That recipe is SophieBelle's. Go to the recipe tab and search for 'jello fondant' HTH icon_smile.gif

I remember someone started a thread on this recipe a few months back. According to that thread this isn't a good recipe. Maybe someone can find the thread? The op said that it was dry and crumbly. I'm looking for the thread. Sorry I couldn't find the link to it.

Have you tried using the jet puff brand strawberry flavored marshmallow to make the mmf? Maybe add a little more strawberry extract if you need a stronger flavor.

OMG !!! IT WORKED !!! I decided that I just had to give it a try and IT WORKED !!! It made the best fondant ever. It is so pliable and the flavor is intense. I only used half the jello packet. It is now "resting" and the smell is getting even stronger!! It smells like strawberry fields in my house right now !!

I am so psyched. Thanks for you suggestions and help. You guys have got to try the jello !!

edited to add: I added the jello to the hot marshmallow mixture. It was a little grainy at first, but the longer it sets, the less grainy it is becoming. There is no grainy-ness at this time.

I made the Lime flavored MMF and was not a fan of that flavor. I mixed it 50/50 with plain MMF in order to get a flavor I could stand. It sounds like you did that ratio from the other direction. I really should try some other flavors. Strawberry sounds great.

I am glad to know that this works. I wanted to try it but that thread I read all of the bad reviews on kept me from trying.

Glad it worked for you Tesso...did you add the half-packet of jello to hot water first (a la Sophiebelle) or just the dry jello to the marshmallow mix?

I tried the recipe about a year ago and it was beautiful until after the rest period, then it was very crumbly. I had to mix it with regular MMF to change the texture and be able to use it.

I added the jello packet to the hot marshmallow mixture. I did NOTdissolve it in water first. This thing is so cool. I cant believe how pliable it is !!

I have already decided to make my other nieces birthday cake Tropical fruit flavored !! I am looking forward to August to make it!! If I can wait that long. icon_lol.gif

My Jello flavored MMF recipe is now officially:
1 bag of mini marshmallows 10.5 oz.
3 tbs of water
3 cups of pwd sugar
1/2 pack of jello (any flavor)

1-2 cups of pwd sugar for kneading purposes.
