Ingredients

How to make it

  • Empty the bag of marshmallows into a glass bowl and add a tablespoon or two of water.
  • Microwave the mixture until the consistency is smooth. Do this in 20-30 second increments, stirring between times.
  • Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir in half the bag of powdered sugar.
  • Pour the remaining powdered sugar on a very clean counter.
  • Pour the marshmallow mixture on your powdered sugar pile.
  • Add flavor to your marshmallow mixture.
  • Knead the remaining sugar into the dough, keeping your hands covered in powdered sugar (DO NOT use oil, lard or shortening to avoid sticking), .
  • You will reach a point where you think that no more sugar can be incorporated, but keep going and add in little bits of the remaining water.
  • You know that the fondant is ready when you have a smooth, elastic ball.
  • If the dough breaks when stretched, add a bit more water.
  • Double wrap the fondant when it is not being used.
  • If your dough is too stiff (e.g. after refrigeration), place it in the microwave for 15 to 30 seconds on defrost.

    Is it okay to add food dye after mixing in the powered sugar? I'm planning on making red stripes with the remaining fondant.

    Does anyone know if marshmallow fondant hardens the same way regular fondant does when making flowers and other cake decorations?

    I've used this recipe several times and it works really well. It's still too sweet for my taste but my son loves it.
