Marshmallow fondant is already awesome, but if you add jello to it you can make it even more delicious while coloring it at the same time! Jello seems to mix in really well with the powdered sugar and gives good results for taste and look.
Step 1: Supplies
- 8 oz Marshmallows
- 1 lb Powdered Sugar*
- 3 oz Box of Jello Mix flavor of choice
- 2 tbs Water (I never measure this but it is about this much)
- Silpat Mat (This is the best thing to have when working with marshmallow fondant! So easy to clean it off!)
- Mixing Bowls
I made only 2oz at a time and then multiplied it for a whole bag of marshmallows, but if you are wondering, here is what I did for each of the colors shown:
- 2 oz Marshmallows
- 1/4 lb Powdered Sugar
- 4 tsp. Jello Mix
- Little bit of water
*I actually don't measure powdered sugar. I figure it is always going to take what it takes.
Step 2: Initial Mixing
I melt the mix for 50 seconds on half power, take out and stir, melt for 45 seconds on half power, and mix one more time. If it still isn't melted, throw it in a little longer, but keep an eye on it. It'll puff up!
Step 3: Bring on the Sugar!
I keep going until I can pass it between my hands about 20 times without it sticking to me. Wrap it up and put it away until you are ready to use it.
Step 4: Use and Enjoy
I thought they all tasted great, but Berry Blue was my favorite!
