My Marshmallow Buttercream Frosting was so popular I decided to make more frosting recipes. I was looking around my kitchen trying to decide on a different unique flavor. Then I saw my sons sour patch kids lol.

I know they are vegan. Sour candy frosting? Yes I think so haha. Buttercream frosting is an icing or filling for pastries. It doesn’t necessarily contain butter or butter flavor.

This thick buttercream frosting consists of a fat and powdered sugar. The fat can be butter, lard, or shortening. Twice as much powdered sugar as fat is required.

Vegan Sour Candy is so easy to use in frosting!

Additionally this entire vegan frosting recipe is so easy. You only need 5 simple vegan ingredients as well. Ingredients include 1 cup sour patch kids candy, 1 cup water, and 12.25 oz smuckers marshmallow topping (one jar).

You also need 2 cups vegetable shortening and 4 cups powdered sugar for this sour patch kids frosting. The directions for sour patch kids frosting recipe are so easy also.

First Put vegetable shortening In a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to blend up shortening by itself first. Combine the marshmallow topping next and blend some more.

Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time blending intermittently. Blend on slow first to avoid making a mess with sugar. Continue to blend on medium then high.

Continue to mix vegan frosting ingredients until powdered sugar is completely blended into shortening. In a medium frying pan add 1 cup sour patch kids and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer and stir. Use a medal fork to squish/break apart sour patch kids. Simmer until water reduces slightly. 

Add vegan sour patch kids mixture to buttercream frosting before it hardens back up. Mix on high until thoroughly combined. Allow to chill in the fridge for approximately 20 minutes.

The hot sour patch kids water changes the consistency of the buttercream. That’s why it’s important to allow it to cool off a bit before blending. This sweet and sour candy topping is great for baked goods

of all kinds.
