BEST EVER HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE MMF ( MARSHMALLOW FONDANT )

I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO MAKE MY OWN CHOCOLATE MMF.I HAD A GOOD BASIC RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE FONDANT, SO I KNEW I JUST HAD TO PLAY WITH IT TO GET WHAT I WANTED. SEARCHED THE INTERNET, FOUND SEVERAL RECIPES FOR CHOCOLATE MMF. TOOK WHAT I LIKE BEST FROM THEM AND EXPERIMENTED. THEN USED THIS INFO AND TWEAKED MY BASIC RECIPE. IT IS A WINNER. TASTES POSITIVELY YUMMY.

Ingredients

Amount Ingredient
1 BAG MINI MARSHMALLOWS
2 TBLSP CHOCOLATE SYRUP
2 TBLSP CORN SYRUP
1-2 TBLSP FLAVORING OF CHOICE ( I USED CAPPUCCINO)
2 TBLSP DUTCH/DARK COCOA
1 TBLSP COCOA FOR KNEADING INTO FONDANT
3-4 CUPS ICING SUGAR
1-? TBLSP ( AS NEEDED ) SHORTENING ( LIKE CRISCO )

Directions

WEATHER WILL BE A FACTOR ON THE DAY YOU MAKE THIS. I HAVE STATED 3-4 CUPS OF ICING SUGAR IN THE RECIPE. I ONLY USED 2 1/2- 2 1/4 CUPS WHEN I MADE MINE AS IT WAS VERY DAMP AND HUMID. SO BE CAUTIOUS AND START OUT WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF ICING SUGAR. YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE. OTHERWISE YOUR FONDANT WILL BE VERY VERY DRY. I ALWAYS MAKE THIS BY HAND AS OPPOSED TO USING MY KA MIXER .I FIND YOU HAVE A BETTER "FEEL" FOR THE FONDANT THIS WAY. USING THE MIXER YOU CAN'T FEEL THE "GIVE" OF THE FONDANT, SO YOU TEND TO ADD MORE ICING SUGAR THAN IS NECESSARY. I RUINED MANY BATCHES OF MMF BEFORE I FIGURED THIS OUT. SO I MADE THE MISTAKES SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO!!!

GREASE YOUR WORK SURFACE WELL WITH SHORTENING.
PLACE 2 CUPS OF ICING SUGAR ON TOP OF THE GREASED SURFACE AND CREATE A WELL IN THE MIDDLE TO POUR YOUR MARSHMALLOW MIXTURE INTO. GREASE YOUR HANDS WELL WITH SHORTENING BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO KNEAD THE FONDANT.
USE A GLASS OR CORNIGWARE BOWL TO MELT YOUR MARSHMALLOWS. IT IS MUCH TOO DIFFICULT TO SCRAPE THE MIXTURE FROM A PLASTIC BOWL. IT STICKS, AND IT IS NASTY. ALSO YOUR PLASTIC BOWL MIGHT MELT. YOU CAN ALSO USE A POT ON TOP OF YOUR STOVE IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MICROWAVE. GREASE YOUR BOWL WELL WITH SHORTENING. THIS MAKES YOUR STICKY MIXTURE EASY TO SCRAPE OUT.

PLACE MARSHMALLOWS IN A WELL GREASED MICRO SAFE BOWL
PLACE CHOCOLATE SYRUP, CORN SYRUP ON TOP AND NUKE IN THE MICRO 1-2 MINUTES
REMOVE AND STIR WITH A METAL SPOON. ADD YOUR FLAVORING AND 2 TBLSP OF COCOA. WORK FAST STIRRING THE MIXTURE. QUICKLY SCRAPE MIXTURE INTO YOUR WELL OF ICING SUGAR. WITH WELL GREASED HANDS BEGIN TO INCORPORATE THE ICING SUGAR INTO THE MARSHMALLOW MIXTURE. WHEN THE FONDANT IS JUST SLIGHTLY TACKY, ADD THE LAST TBLSP OF COCOA AND KNEAD INTO THE FONDANT.
THIS MAKES THE FONDANT DARK, RICH AND CHOCOLATEY. YOU COULD ADD MORE COCOA. BUT TOO MUCH WILL MAKE YOUR FONDANT DRY, SO BE CAUTIOUS. YOUR FONDANT SHOULD BE SLIGHTLY TACKY, BUT NOT STICKY
WRAP YOUR FONDANT IN A GREASED PIECE OF PLASTIC WRAP AND PLACE IN A ZIP LOC BAG OR CONTAINER FOR STORAGE.
THE FONDANT SHOULD REST FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS OR OVERNIGHT FOR BEST RESULTS. I USED MINE THE NEXT DAY, AND FOUND IT A TAD DRY. I ADDED ENOUGH SHORTENING UNTIL I FELT IT WAS SMOOTH AND ELASTIC/PLIABLE. WHEN YOU ROLL OUT A TEST PIECE, THERE SHOULD BE NO CRACKS IN THE FONDANT, IF THERE IS, ADD MORE SHORTENING THIS SHOULD COVER A 10"/3"-12"/3" CAKE WITH NOT MUCH LEFT OVER.

ENJOY. I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS RECIPE AS MUCH AS I DID.
:o)
FINAL TIPS } 1. WHEN ROLLING OUT YOUR CHOCOLATE MMF, USE COCOA POWDER INSTEAD OF ICING SUGAR. THEN THERE WILL BE NO TELL TALE WHITE MARKS LEFT ON THE FONDANT FROM THE ICING SUGAR TO SPOIL THE LOOK.
2. THIS CAN BE FROZEN IF YOU HAVE ANY LEFT OVER. JUST BRING TO ROOM TEMPERATURE AND RE-KNEAD BEFORE YOU USE IT

Thanks. I will give it a try.
Thanks! I cannot wait to try it!
thanks , must try the recipe, question out of the subject , do u also put corn syrup in regular white MMF?
I am going to try this one. I use to use choc. marshmellows but it didn't come out dark.kinda lighter than a tootsie roll,.tasted good though. I always use a little corn syrup when making my white MMF.
What size bag of the mini marshmallows? How many ounces in the bag? I have bought bags that are 10 oz. and bags that are 16 oz.
What size bag of marshmallows - 16 or 10?
What size bag of marshmallows - 16 or 10?
To make it even easier on yourself grease your kitchen aid bowl and pour the powdered sugar in. Once your marshmallow mixture is melted pour it over powdered sugar and turn it on and blend until blended. Turn out on your greased surface and kneed until mixed well. Wrap and store to rest.
This info you state above deeweets is already in the recipe. This is my recipe, but there was confusion when I logged in, so somehow, I didn't get the credit. Have contacted Jackie about it. Sorry about the amount of marshmallows. It should be 16 oz., or 254 grams. Yes I use a small amounrt of white corn syrup when making my regular MMF.

jchuck contacted me about the error this morning. It was actually a bug with the way our caching system worked where it was saving the last username that approved the recipe for publication (which was me) instead of showing the author. It seemed to affect just a few of the new recipes submitted. We have fixed that error, so it should not happen again. If you have any other questions, please let me know. --Jackie
LOL!!! What a confusion...SMH...
