Can you guys give me your recipe? I'm wondering about the consistency of my own. Seems a little thick should it be this way or more pliable like play doh? Mine always is more like clay. THX in advance!
16 oz bag of Marshmallows
2 lbs sifted powder sugar
2 TBSP liquid ( I use a mix of vanilla and water)
Melt marshmallows and liquid until smooth in microwave ,stirring often.
Knead in as much sugar as possible. It will be dry and kinda tough. Coat with shortening ,place in ziploc bag and let sit for at least 8 hours.
This is my favorite recipe and method. I don't melt the marshmallows completely to liquid.
If your MMF is too clay-like you may just need to knead it more. You can also try adding small amounts of vegetable shortening as you knead it to soften it.
I use the same recipe as jamiekwebb; but I don't always use the entire 2 pound bag of PS. I just knead it until it feels like the correct consistancy; it also just takes practice to get the feel of it Keep trying, you'll get it right! HTH.
I made black fondant from chocolate mmf recipe on Sunday. My question is, does it harden like fondx or other store bought fondant?
I do the recipe that MisWheels does, but I put a 1/2 cup of Crisco in it too. 1/2 cup Crisco on bottom of bowl. Add 1/2 of the sugar. Add Melted marshmallows/water mixture. Mix with dough hook until incorporated. Add rest of sugar until you get desired consistency. Since I started adding the 1/2 cup of Crisco, I found that it is much easier to work with.
