  • mixing bowls
  • rubber spatula
  • rubber gloves (or shortening)


  • 10 ounces mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Water


  • Place marshmallows in a medium microwave safe bowl
  • Dump 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
  • 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
