Yes, with just one batch of the recipe below.
Rhonda's Ultimate MMF
15 oz. mini marshmallows
2 T water
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
2 tsp. light corn syrup (helps w/ pliability)
1 tsp. vanilla (prefer almond extract)
2 lbs. (approx 7.5 C) confectioner's sugar, sifted
1/2 C Crisco or vegetable shortening
Grease microwave proof bowl w/ Crisco. Also grease wooden or heat proof spoon. Pour marshmallows and water into bowl. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes (or less depending on how big of batch you are making) stopping and stirring at 40 second intervals. Mixture should be soupy.
Take out of microwave and immediately add corn syrup, lemon juice, salt and extract. Stir well. Sift confectioner's sugar into mixture, one cup at a time. I mix mine with a dough hook in my Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Now grease your work surface well and turn mixture out of bowl onto counter. Grease your hands with Crisco, and knead well. If mixture seems soft, add additional powdered sugar.
Shape into a mound and put a coating of Crisco on outside. Double wrap in cling wrap and insert into Ziplock bag. Press air out of bag and seal. Allow to rest overnight, but, can be used after sitting for a few hours.
