Homemade Marshmallow FondantFrom tippystclair 8 years ago
- 16 oz bag of marshmallows shopping list
- 2 lb bag of powdered sugar shopping list
- 1/2 cup of water shopping list
- 1 tsp flavoring (vanilla, Amaretto, orange essence, etc.) shopping list
- (pepperment extract makes the fondant taste good. Use clear vanilla if you don't want to add a tint to your fondant.) shopping list
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.
