Until this last time my homemade MMF didn't tear, but it did have poke marks all over it. Then I made chocolate MMF that has lite corn syrup in it, and it didn't have poke marks, so I thought it was because of the corn syrup. So I added corn syrup to my most recent batch of MMF thinking it would make the MMF more elastic and eliminate poke marks.
When I was rolling out the MMF, it looked perfect, no poke marks, nice and smooth. But as soon as I tried to pick it up it immediately tore, big tears. I couldn't use it. The more I kneaded it, the worse it got!
Did I add too much corn syrup? I didn't adjust the recipe any other way. So my recipe was:
16oz. mini marshmallows
2 Tbsp. water
7c. powdered sugar
plus the added 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
Should I have used more powdered sugar? The chocolate MMF has more powder because of the cocoa. Is this the difference? I saved the MMF. Can I knead in more powdered sugar to fix it, or is there anything I can do to fix it?
Or is it the colder, drier weather?
It looked great when rolling, but not usable!
Thanks in advance!
