4 cups mini marshmallows (half of a 16 oz. bag)
4 cups powdered sugar- plus a little for dusting.
2 tsp water
1/2 teaspoon of clear vanilla
gel colors to color fondant as desired
Place your mini marshmallows and water into a large mixing bowl and microwave on high for
about one minute- until they are puffy and melted.
Stir them together with a rubber spatula until they are completely smooth (if not melted completely, put them back in the microwave on high for 5-10 seconds).
Add clear vanilla and mix well.
Add about 1/4 of the powdered sugar, stir until smooth, add another 1/4 and stir. It will become difficult to stir and very sticky.
Pour the rest of the powdered sugar onto a clean counter or cutting board.
Scrape the sticky fondant mixture out of the bowl and onto the powdered sugar and begin to
knead it together with clean (powder sugar coated!) hands. It will gradually become like a smooth clay consistency.
Use a metal scraper to keep it from sticking to the counter/ board. This can now be colored with gel, rolled out and cut, or stored (tightly wrapped) in the fridge for
Refrigerate it overnight before use.
