Toasted Marshmallow Frosting


16 large white marshmallows

1 cup icing sugar (confectioners' or powdered)

1/2 lb butter (2 sticks, or 1 cup) at room temperature

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

8 oz of Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Cream (or Marshmallow Fluff)


Place marshmallows on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Place on lower rack of oven, and broil marshmallows until nice and brown on top, between 30-60 seconds. Remove pan from oven and gently turn the marshmallows over, and broil until they are golden brown. Be sure to keep an eye on them--they burn very, very quickly. Combine butter and icing sugar in electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, on low until blended (about 1 minute). Add vanilla and mix on high for about 3 minutes. Add marshmallow cream and toasted marshmallows, and mix on lowest setting for about 1 minute.
