DIY Marshmallow Fondant
Yield: 1 batch fondant icing

Ingredients:
16 ounces white mini-marshmallows (use a good quality brand)
2 – 5 Tbs water
2 pounds icing sugar
1/2 cup Crisco shortening (place in a small bowl)

Directions:
NOTE: Please be careful, this first stage can get hot.
Melt marshmallows and 2 Tbs of water in a microwave or double boiler. To microwave, place the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, open microwave and stir, back in microwave for 30 seconds more, open microwave and stir again, and continue doing this until melted. It usually takes about 2 1/2 minutes total. Place 3/4 of the powdered sugar on the top of the melted marshmallow mix.
Now grease your hands GENEROUSLY (palms, backs, and in between fingers), then heavily grease the counter you will be using and dump the bowl of marshmallow/sugar mixture in the middle.
