Mell-O Marshmallow Fondant

Great idea when decorating cakes/cupcakes with lots of color...
• 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)
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.
We are going to start off like normal, but instead of just mixing marshmallows and water, we are going to add in our jello mix. If the jello has bigger grains, you might want to run it through a food processor. You want this as fine as powdered sugar so it mixes in well. Otherwise, it might come out too grainy.
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
