This recipe was inspired from a tutorial by the one and only Rosanna Pansino.

Supplies Needed:

-Mixing Bowls
-Rubber Spatula
-Rubber Gloves (or shortening)

The rubber gloves are for while you are kneading the marshmallow fondant. Sometimes it can get a little messy and sticky. Another alternative is to rub some shortening on your hands like lotion and the fondant won’t stick to your hands.

Ingredients Needed:

– 10 Ounces of mini marshmallows
-6 Cups of confectioners sugar
-3 Tablespoons of water

Instructions:

Place marshmallows in a medium microwave safe bowl

Pour the 3 tablespoons of water onto the marshmallows. Mix to coat all of the marshmallows with water

Microwave in 30 second increments, mixing in between, until all of the marshmallows are melted and no lumps are left

In a separate, large bowl sift half of the confectioners sugar

Pour all the melted marshmallows on top of sugar

Sift the remaining confectioners sugar into the bowl.

Note: I will withhold about one cup of the sugar and add while I’m kneading. Depending on where you live, you may not need as much. You don’t want to end up with dry fondant as an end result!

Using your hands knead the mixture until it turns into a taffy-like substance. Once the mixture is stuck together you can transfer it onto a clean surface and finish the kneading process. This should take about 5 minutes

That is it you guys! Isn’t that SUPER easy? You will be making all kinds of different colored fondant now, right?
