Good fondant recipe, however I think there is a typo. The Kraft Jet-Puffed mini marshmallows came only in the 10.5 oz size at my store. I used only the 10.5 oz of marshmallows and 3T of water the first time I made this, and pretty close to 2 pounds of confectioners' sugar. It came out great.
If you use 16 oz of marshmallows as written in the recipe (which is the weight of the large sized marshmallows bag), you will probably need more than 2 pounds of confectioners' sugar. When I tried it I probably used 3-4 cups more. It still came together fine, just needed a lot more sugar in the kneading phase when using the full 16 oz of marshmallows as called for (and the full 4T of water).
I also used butter as the recipe states, to avoid trans-fats, and had no problems with it. I wasn't sure if there would be problems since lots of reviewers mentioned using shortening.
