I made this for our Christmas dessert. It was wonderful! Everyone raved about how good it was. It is a very easy recipe to make, I did not change a thing. My only suggestion is to watch the marshmallow creme setting up. Mine was setting up and ready after 45 minutes instead of the 60 minutes recommended. A real great recipe for the Holidays. Carolkoff
