Ingredients:
 
1 bag (400 g) of mini marshmallow
2 tbsp. of water
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
2 pounds of icing sugar
parchment paper
Crisco shortening
food coloring (any color desired)
 
Step 1 
Place you marshmallows in a microwavable container. Add water and your vanilla extract.
 
Step 2
Melt your marshmallow for 1 minute, 30 seconds at a time in the microwave. Using a spoon, stir between both intervals, until the marshmallow mixture is entirely smooth and free of lumps.
 
Step 3
Cut a large sheet of parchment paper and place it on your work surface. Pour your icing sugar onto your parchment paper and create a crease in the middle. (the crease will prevent your marshmallow to leak everywhere)
 
step 4
Pour your melted marshmallow in the crease created from your icing sugar.
 
Step 5
 Fold the sides first by using the icing using. Make sure you have icing sugar on your dough every time you fold or else the melted marshmallow may burn you or get really sticky.
 
Step 6 
Keep putting icing sugar each time you are kneading, until you get a nice smooth sugar dough. At this stage, you may color your fondant with food coloring.
 
 Step 7
Cover your dough with a generous coat of shortening. This will keep it moist. You may use your dough right away or let it rest for couple hours or over night.
 
 Step 8
 
 Store your marshmallow fondant in a Ziploc bag, making sure that no air goes in. **If fondant gets in contact with air to long, your fondant will get hard and no longer good to work with** Make sure to store your fondant in a cool area.
