How to Make Marshmellow Fondant

  • 2Once all marshmallows are melted start sifting the powdered sugar in stirring constantly
  • 3Once powdered sugar is mixed it, turn fondant dough out on a greased counter top. Grease your hands up real well and knead the dough until it is all smooth.
  • 4Place dough in a gallon sized baggie dusted with cornstarch or some plastic wrap dusted with cornstarch and let rest for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results
  • 5To soften the dough, work it with your hands. To prevent sticking use either crisco or corn starch to prepare working space.

    Remaining dough can be kept well sealed in plastic in the freezer for up to a month.
