How to Make Christmas Fondant

- Stir until the mixture holds its shape. Turn into a greased pan. Cool until luke-warm. Knead until smooth.
- Add flavoring oil or extract and coloring. Shape with lightly greased hands into balls, mint patties, etc.
- Use to dip in chocolate, or flatten into pieces that can be inserted into a piece of dried fruit (peaches, apricots, dates or figs). Top with a half pecan or walnut; pressed into the center of the fondant. Yield 1 1/3 lbs.
