16 ounces mini marshmallows
2-5 Tablespoons water
2 pounds powdered sugar
Crisco (white not butter flavored)
In microwavable bowel, place marshmallows and 2 Tbs. water. Heat for 30 seconds and stir. Continue heating 15 to 20 sec, stirring in between, adding additional water if needed until smooth and completely melted.
Stir in 3/4 bag of powdered sugar.
Grease counter top or board with Crisco, pour out fondant.
Grease hands and begin kneading, working in more sugar if needed. Fondant should end up being smooth, not dry and not sticky. If it gets too dry add a very small amount of water.
You can now color it if you like.
Store wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and then in a bag.
To use, spread powdered sugar and roll out. Place over a frosted cake, smooth and refrigerate.
