  • 1/4 cup unsalted Butter
  • 16 oz (1 package) mini marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Butter in a shallow dish. Set aside
  • Place marshmallows into a large bowl that is microwave safe. Microwave on high power for 30 second intervals, or until the marshmallows are melted.
  • Stir the marshmallows and water together until they are smooth.
  • Reserve 1 cup of powdered Sugar. Beat in the remaining sugar powder, one cup at time, until mixture becomes sticky. The dough will be stiff.
  • Start kneading dough in the bowl using butter-coated hands. The dough will become more flexible as you knead it.
  • Dust the work surface with sugar powder. Continue to knead dough until it is no longer sticky. This should take about 5-10 minutes.
  • Wrap the fondant tightly in plastic and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Allow fondant to reach room temperature before using. Dust the surface of a flat table with powdered icing sugar and roll out the dough to the desired thickness.
  • Serve your favorite cookies by cutting them into rounds, printing and topping them.
