Making Homemade Fondant: Pour bag of marshmallows into a microwave safe dish and sprinkle lightly with water. Microwave until the marshmallows puff up. (Approx. 1-2 minutes)
Stir marshmallow mixture to smooth out any lumps. Add green food coloring and stir until desired color is achieved.
Continuously scoop powdered sugar until the mixture is not tacky and able to be kneaded like dough. The fondant is then created. Cover fondant while not using so not to dry it out.
