Turkish Delight needs help being delightful!

My son and I made Turkish Delight yesterday, and all seemed fine. We let it sit out on the kitchen counter overnight to firm up, and cut it up and powdered sugared it at noon. But the consistency is a bit too soft, and the powdered sugar seems to be blend with the candy making a pastry mess on the bottom of my tin. How can I get the candy to dry out and firm up a bit? The confection tastes wonderful, sweet with pistachios and rose water flavors. But the consistency is off. I,m storing it on the kitchen counter, seemingly cool and dry... Any suggestions?
