This is the easiest recipe ever! Turned out perfectly and I stirred and stirred continuously. That’s the key to keeping the mixture from burning. Used real butter to coat the pan to give it a rich buttery taste. Saved and treasured!!

When I first discovered this recipe in your magazine years ago, I gave it a try because it sounded so easy... and it was! It was exactly like the peanut butter fudge they used to serve in the school kitchen when I was little. Soooooo good! At Debbie on Nov 3, 2018... The butter is used to grease the pan in step 1. At Susan11160 on Apr 24, 2018... Maybe you should give the recipe a try before giving it such a poor rating. The marshmallow fluff gives the fudge a soft, slightly fluffy texture and is not at all gross. I'm not fond of thick, dense, hard fudge. This definitely is NOT thick and dense or hard... it's nice and soft and fluffy.

Easy and delicious recipe. To Debbie: The instructions for the butter are on line #1 of the DIRECTIONS: "Grease with butter". I know it's easy to overlook something even when you read it over and over. Good luck!

Marshmallow cream is “Fluff”!!!! Ice cream topping is smoothed out and pourable. It would RUIN this recipe!!!

Does marshmallow cream mean marshmallow ice cream topping or fluff?

Made just as recipe written. Both my husband and I thought it had a grainy texture. Tasted OK. Probably will not make again. Must admit that it was very easy to make.
