How to Make Starburst "Fondant"

A big pan of brownies is always a favorite at gatherings, but sometimes a girl just want to elevate it a bit. Enter "fondant" stars. Made from Starbursts, these decorative stars are colorful, tasteful, and a whole lot easier than buying packages of fondant, coloring, rolling and cutting.

Here's the process.  Unwrap two Starbursts. Microwave them for 8-10 seconds until they are just barely soft but not too soft.  Smash them together with your fingers and then take a rolling pin and roll them flat. You should get about a 2" circle.

Take your cookie cutter and press down firmly.  
You may have to jiggle the cutter a bit to get a good, clean edge.

If you are looking for the blue Starbursts, you'll need to buy the Fruity Slushies pack. 
 I just thought you'd like to know.

Repeat the process until you have enough stars to cover all your brownies, or cupcakes, or cookies, or whatever it is you have that needs ornamentation. Use the scraps to create these lovely multi-colored stars.  Just smash the scraps together, reheat, and roll!

Enjoy your Independence Day!
