Homemade Marshmallow Fondant

8 oz. white mini marshmallows.

1 tsp vanilla, almond or butter extract

1 tbsps water

1 lb powdered sugar

Before you begin, put 1 lb of confectioners sugar in your mixer bowl.

In another microwave safe bowl, grease the bowl with cooking spray or shortening.

Place the marshmallows, extract and water in the bowl.  Microwave for 1 minutes.

Remove bowl and mix it till blended.  If it is still lumpy, put it back in the microwave for 15 second

intervals until smooth.  Add to the confectioners sugar.  Turn mixer on low at first to blend and then up

to medium until all combined.  Scrape mixture out of bowl and onto a counter that is dusted lightly

with confectioners sugar.  Dust your hands with sugar and knead until the mass is smooth.  Wrap

tightly n plastic wrap and let rest for at least one hour.

To store – after it is cooled, place the wrapped mass into a zip loc bag, removing as much air as possible

and store in refrigerator for a few weeks.

To color – after fondant is cool, break off as much as you wish and with gloved hands, knead in food

coloring until desired color.  Store as above or use immediately.
