Marshmallow Fondant (MMF) is awesome, so what can make it more awesome?  Adding Chocolate!

I went into this little experiment expecting the batch made of chocolate marshmallows to turn out the best.  I was very wrong, but I'm happy I got to taste test all of these awesome batches!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
This is what you will need, in some combination, to make all of these batches.  I'm sorry I don't have the amount of powdered sugar I used.  I stopped measuring that out after the first time making MMF.  I find you just need what you need and try to make sure I have at least the amount normal recipes say which is about 1 pound of powdered sugar to every 8 ounces of marshmallows.

Ingredients:
  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate Marshmallows
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Water
Handy things to have:
  • Silpat mat (or imitation) very, very handy, still sticks a bit, but much better than your counter
  • Microwaveable
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Measuring utensils 
  • Sifter of some sort, you won't like getting clumps in your MMF

Step 2: Cocoa Version

Staring off simple with just cocoa.

Ingredients:
  • 3 oz Marshmallows
  • 2 tsp Cocoa Powder
  • Dash of water
  • Powdered Sugar
Melt your marshmallows first.  Once they are ready, mix in your cocoa.  Now mix in the powdered sugar as normal.

Verdict:
This batch had a nice taste to it and gave the best brown color of all the batches.  It did seem crumbly like I read before, but didn't seem to just fall apart.  While it didn't seem to have the stretch like normal MMF, it still rolled out and stretched over my little ramekin just fine.

Looks tasty. Is this just like the one you buy at the store or is it different? =) Thanks

It is different. As far as I know just Fondant is sold in stores and not Marshmallow fondant. I have never tried the stuff from the store, but that is because I only ever hear about how bad it tastes. So I figured I might as well make it :)
Yes, I hear the store fondant does not taste good and it's mostly to make the cakes look good. I will have to try this kind on my next cake. I'm wondering how it will hold up after putting it on a cake and if the texture will hold the stamp being rolled on. Have you tried the stamps on this fondant yet?

I have not. I have limited experience with marshmallow fondant, but from what I have read, it can be worked with the same as normal fondant.
I have really been wanting to try fondant, Penolopy. This is great because I have heard that the store bought stuff doesn't taste real good. Now I have a homemade recipe to try!
I have heard the same thing. I hope you enjoy some tasty chocolate marshmallow fondant :)
Looks absolutely delicious!!!!

Super! When I do fondant from scratch ... 75% of the time it's a flop! Lets hope it's a success now :-)
Want to know... If I do marshmallow from scratch ... Is it the same?? As fondant I mean

I haven't used or made regular fondant before, but I have made marshmallow fondant many times. I think they are similar. MMF has always been sticky to me, you need to keep powdered sugar nearby when working with it cause if it gets to warm or gets touched too much, it will stick to everything. Except for the very first time I tried to make MMF and jumped the gun in trying to kneed it, it has always worked out for me :)
