Will it still work if I substitute milk powder with actual milk??

No.. you can not substitute milk powder with milk.. it's the powder that gives its consistency.. and its special taste.

Do you have a weight in grams for 20 tbsp of sugar?

As I know   20 tbsp of sugar would be around 400 g.

This looks so easy, and to think of all the jars of marshmallow fluff I've struggled to empty all these years. Thanks.

I've tried this recipe today and, unfortunately, the quantities, as listed above, don't seem to be the right ones. The mixture, after adding in all the powder milk and cocoa, it's just way too thick. You cannot stir it, you can maybe try kneading it :). Can you confirm the quantities? I'm thinking especially about the amount of water &/or butter. That's what seems to be missing. I've tried adding in another 100ml warm water, until the mixture has reached the consistency I've remembered it having. I'll let you know if that worked out.

Hey Di :) , I don't know why this didn't work right for you, the quantities are enough for 500 g of powdered milk, 200 g of butter and 200 ml of water. It is true you have to move pretty fast until the syrup is hot so to be able to stir it all. Let me know how did it worked for you finally. 


Just made this recipe over the weekend and it turned out perfect. Just wanted to let you know, that it might be helpful for you to use a hand mixer, after you remove the hot syrup from fire, gradually add the milk powder while mixing. It will definitely work this way. Hope to hear from you:)

I just whipped this up. Wow - so quick, so easy and really tasty too. I used a hand mixer as suggested above. It did the trick. Perfect! Thank you. :)

Very glad to here that:) Everybody here adore this. It's the kind of dessert that never stay too much on the serving plate. Have an idea for you I've made last week:) Make half black and pour it on the tray and then make the other half white (without the cocoa powder) and put on top. With a knife create swirls .. the result is incredible good looking and tasty too. Before cutting dip the knife in hot water to make sure the squares are cut really nice.

Hello, will whole milk powder work or do you use fat free you can buy at the stores?

I have used whole milk powder, it worked great.

I did this today and probably botched something. I think i shouldn't have added all the milk-cocoa mixture all at once - once i did that the whole thing became really thick and somewhat un-mixable. i ended up with 2 separate consistencies in the same bowl, a main mass of something mostly fudgy, and a leftover of chocolaty liquid that i couldn't mix in there no matter what. I think the taste is about right, but it wasn't liquid enough for me to pour into the tray so i had to kind of squish it into place. Ill have to try this again, i hate it when my candy fails :P

I am not sure why this happened to you.. are you sure you used the exact measurements? It should mix well, without making a problem. Maybe next time use a different milk powder brand and see the difference.

Hey this recipe looks absolutely delicious! But i do have a question. When you boil the sugar and the water together for further 10mins, what is the stage you're aiming? Are you making caramel or sugar syrup or maybe any specific temperature? Any reply will be very much appreciated :) Regards
