marshmallow fondant is good.

First you take the 'mallows and you melt them, you melt them.
Then you take the sugar and you mix it, you mix it.

Grease your surface, grease your hands - LIBERALLY! This mixture will stick to everything and anything that isn't greased very well.
Also apply elbow grease as you knead, knead, knead until it forms to a dough-like consistency. 

Coat your marshmallow formation with additional grease, then wrap tightly with saran wrap. Refrigerate overnight.

I couldn't help but lick my hands clean! Mmm, deliciousness.
