-3 tablespoons water
-1 bag mini marshmallows
-1 tub Crisco
-5 cups powdered sugar
1. In a large bowl, empty the all the mini marshmallows and pour the 3 tablespoons of water over them and stir. Microwave 30 seconds, remove and stir. Continue to microwave in 30 second increments until marshmallows are completely melted.
2.Using a spoon or spatula that is coated in Crisco, begin to stir in 4 cups of powdered sugar. When a dough has begun to form, dump the ball of dough onto a powdered sugar coated counter. Using the remaining cup of powdered sugar, knead the dough for about 10 minutes until strong fondant has formed. **Your hands should be covered in Crisco or else it will stick!! ***Continue to knead in any additional powdered sugar needed until it is no longer sticky.
3. If coloring the fondant, use a gel food coloring and knead it in at this point. It will be marbled a bit in the beginning, but keep kneading it and the color will eventually become uniform.
