HOMEMADE FONDANT RECIPE FROM SCRATCH

1 (16oz) pkg mini marshmallows
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract, mixed with 4 TBS water
2 lbs powdered sugar, sifted
gel food color (optional)

softened butter, for hands
vegetable shortening, for counter top when kneading

Spray the microwave safe bowl with vegetable spray and melt the marshmallows in the microwave on high for a minute or so. Add the vanilla water; mixing well.


Add the gel color that you want to use; and mix it well into the hot marshmallow mixture. If you forget to add the color now, it needs to be adding when you knead it and this may result in texture problems.

Heavily grease the area with shortening where you will knead the dough. Spray the beaters with vegetable oil and add powdered sugar (1 cup at a time). Beat as much as you can with the mixer (the dough will be very stiff), then butter your hands and knead in the rest. Continue kneading the fondant until it becomes smooth, pliable and no longer sticky; approximately 5 to 10 minutes.

Form it into a ball and rub entire surface with shortening. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day, bring the ball of fondant to room temperature and roll it out on a greased surface. It's ready to go.  Learning how to make fondant is easy isn't it?  No trips to the store.
