Marshmallow Fondant Recipe

11 Aug


  • 1 pound of marshmallows (we used Jet Puffed)
  • 2 pounds of confectioner’s sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons of water


  1. Place the marshmallows in a bowl with the water and cover with plastic wrap.
  2. Microwave marshmallows for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from microwave and stir the marshmallow mixture with a wooden spoon until they are completely dissolved. If not repeat step 1-2 for about 40 seconds until they are melted.
  4. Incorporate sifted confectioners sugar gradually into the marshmallows with a wooden spoon. Continue incorporating the sugar until you get a dense, elastic and almost firm dough.
  5. Pour some of the sugar into a work table and place the dough in it,  knead the dough whilst still incorporating even more sugar.
  6. If the dough is firm and you haven’t poured all of the sugar in it, discard the rest of the sugar; if the dough is still sticky and not firm and you’ve used up all of the sugar then add some more!
  7. Wrap fondant in plastic wrapping paper immediately and let rest for 24 hours.

It’s kind of messy and all you’ll be thinking about is this guy whilst making it…
