1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar
Melt marshmallows in microwae or in a double boiler. combine water and knead in sugar until the dough is not sticky. I use my dough hook but you can probably use your hands. You may not need all the sugar.
let sit until cool.
Store wrapped in airtight container
Reheat in microwave to use it if it gets hard

Notes Hardens on outside stays soft on the inside

For chocolate, add 1 oz melted chocolate and 1 tablespoon for small recipe

may add flavoring, 1 tablespoon candy melts, or any type

can roll very thin without tearing

crisco on your hands may help handling

if string just add a touch more water and heart

may be used for roses,leaves...anything

do not use marshmellow cream

can be refrigerated

doesn't crack

doesn't tear like regular fondant

Pairs Well With
