Now this recipe does not require too many special tools, but you will need a microwave and a kitchen scale. Here are the ingredients:
- 200 g Mini Marshmallows
- 400 g Powdered Sugar, measured then sifted
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp light corn syrup
- 1 tsp clear vanilla (or any other flavor) extract you desire
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 c Veggie Shortening
- Gel food coloring (optional)
This recipe could be divided or multiplied, so you can make as little or as much as you need.
The first thing that you will need to do is measure all the ingredients.
Now, in a large heat safe bowl, combine the mini marshmallows, water, corn syrup, vanilla, salt and color and heat all together at 30 second intervals in your microwave until fully combined. It took me about 3 thirty second intervals to become smooth marshmallowy sauce.
Grease a spatula with some veggie shortening and add into the marshmallow sauce, half of the sifted powdered sugar. The mixture will be quite sticky, but continue to mix. A cup at a time mix in the sugar until it looks kinda like play dough.
Grease your work counter with a good amount of veggie shortening. Tip your bowl over onto your work counter and knead the marshmallow dough until pliable. Spread more veggie shortening to your counter as needed so your fondant won't stick to your counter.
Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit over night. And there you have it...MARSHMALLOW FONDANT!!!
