Easy Marshmallow Fondant Recipe
This easy marshmallow fondant is delicious on cakes or biscuits, and it tastes just like the flavour of mmmMallows you’ve used.
- 300g mmmMallows in the flavour of your choice, finely chopped
- 2-3 Tbsp (30-45ml) water
- 4 cups (about 500g) icing sugar, sifted, plus extra for dusting
- Place marshmallows and water in a large microwaveable bowl.
- Melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between until mixture is smooth and marshmallows have melted completely.
- Stir in half the icing sugar and combine until a soft dough ball forms.
- Turn out onto a surface dusted with icing sugar, and knead in remaining sugar using your hands, until the fondant comes together and is shiny and glossy. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Add a dash of water if fondant mixture becomes too dry.
- Cover in clingfilm if storing and place in a resealable bag to keep moist.
If using for biscuits:
Place fondant on a surface dusted with icing sugar and roll out to about 1cm thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out desired shapes in the same size as your biscuits. Combine a little icing sugar and water to create a paste, and use this as a glue to decorate biscuits with the fondant shapes.
If using to cover a cake:
Make sure the cake is cold and the icing has set completely. Place fondant on a surface dusted with icing sugar and roll out to 1-2cm thick. Place fondant over the cake, using your hands to secure it in place. Cut away the excess and smooth out using a dough scraper or palette knife. Decorate cake as desired.
Different flavours of mmmMallows will enable you to create different colours and flavours of fondant. Do not store fondant in the fridge.
