"delicious alternative to chocolate"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 2, 2016

"My butter also separated from the mixture eventually had to pour out all the butter and just put the rest into a pan. I did exactly like it said and I used real butter . One person that wrote a review said you're just supposed to use one bag of white chocolate chips I used two like it said to do. Hope someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong

"We love this and it's so easy! However, we dis add more lemon extract and a few drops of yellow food coloring."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2015

"I made this as directed, but as soon as I added the lemon extract and marshmallow fluff, the butter separated and no amount of stirring would get it re-incorporated. So I put the fudge into a fan,leaving the butter behind, then it took at least 5 sheets of paper towels to sop up the butter that was oozing from little pore like spots. But the fudge tastes fine.What did I do wrong?"
