The fondant recipe I use - and it's sooo simple:

1 lb bag marshmallows (either large or small, it doesn't matter)
2 lb bag of powdered sugar (sifted is best)
2 tbsp water or flavoring of your choice (I usually use vanilla)
Crisco to coat

Put marshmallows in a bowl along with water/flavoring, mix to coat marshmallows. Put in microwave for 30 second intervals until totally melted and fluffy (usually bout 2 minutes)

The next step you can to 2 ways:
1 - if you have a stand mixer grease dough hook, and sides of bowl, pour melted marshmallow in bowl, pour in powdered sugar and mix together until starting to form a lump and machine starts having a problem. Grease table top and your hands, then pour mixture out of bowl onto surface. You will need to knead the mixture until it it nice and silky and all the powdered sugar is gone.
2 - If you don't have a stand mixer, grease the surface, pour about half of the powdered sugar then make a well in it to pour the melted marshmallow. Grease your hands then begin kneading the mixtures together, continue adding the powdered sugar until you have used it all and the fondant is nice and silky.

To store, you will need to cover it with crisco and store wrapped in plastic wrap and a resealable plastic bag.

You can color as wanted.

If it is a little dry, then add a little water and knead it in.

Everone loves it and is so glad it doesn't taste like the store bought fondant.

If you are looking for a non-marshmallow fondant, I've found this one:
http://www.cakescanada.com/HowTo/Fondant.pdf

I've used it a number of times since I found it and it's wonderful and I've not gone back to MMF.

This recipe is image heavy and very step by step (which I like) it also has a kitchen aid instructions as well as by hand.
