Microwave is on the blink, does anyone know how I can melt mm over the stovetop? A couple of places I googled said I needed to add melted butter to keep it from sticking to the pan, but I'm not sure if this will change the final texture of the fondant. Help please? I was going to make this tonight! TIA!

Several times I've read on here that people make RKT without the butter, so I can't imagine why omitting the butter wouldn't work for you. I would stand over the pan, have the burner fairly low, and stir the whole time just to make sure I didn't burn it.

You could grease a stainless steel bowl and then put the marshmallows in and melt it over a pot of boiling water like you would chocolate. Might take a bit longer but you won't burn them.

My thought was to put your crisco/butter in a double boiler and heating till hot and than add in your MM and stir, and stir until melted and you could pray it with non stick spray to help from sticking.
