Easy Fondant in 12 minutes


This was adapted from "The Twisted Sisters" recipe. I found it quick, easy and not sticky.

List of Materials

  • 16oz Marshmallows
  • 1 Cup of All Vegetable Crisco (the ready made blocks)
  • 2lbs of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon
  • Spatula
  • Smooth board to Knead fondant (I use the backside of a "Rotary Cutting Mat" by Taylor
  • Plastic wrap and freezer bags


Place crisco block in mixing bowl


Measure out 16oz of Marshmallows (or if you can find the 16oz bags no need)


Pour 2lbs of sugar in bowl over your crisco


Add 3 Tbls cold water to marshmallows in microwavable bowl. Heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir when done until mixture is smooth. Immediately pour over powdered sugar and crisco in your bowl. Using dough hook start at slow speed and gradually pick up speed so as not to have a sugar storm. By the end I place my mixer on high (Kitchen-Aid) and let the mixer do most of the kneading. Use spatula to scrap any leftovers from mixing bowl and dump out on a greased surface. Break into 4 parts, knead, wrap tightly and store in a freezer bag. If some sugar doesn't mix, sitting overnight will take care of that. To use, just pop in microwave for 10-15 secs just until soft enough to knead and not too hot (becasue it will burn you...I know) and it's ready to use!
