I made this to add to fudge, and it worked wonderfully! The texture was wonderful and the taste was so similar to the jarred stuff. I followed another review and added less vanilla, but thought it was too strong of a powdered sugar taste without the full measure of vanilla. I also beat it for about 7 minutes before adding the powdered sugar, and it was perfect! Thank you for a great recipe! I would use it in a heartbeat again.

this didn't work at all for me.Added an extra 2 minutes mixing and it never once doubled in size. kept mixing, but still nothing happened, so I figured that was as big as it would get and added the powdered sugar. added the vanilla once it was mixed and turned my mixer off. it was runny and tasted like don't glaze. won't be trying this again.

Made home made "ding dongs"for my boys for Valentines Day and had to be milk free--- this filling was perfect, tasty and made the milk-free chocolate cakes "creamier"

YUM! I have never made marshmallow creme before. I do believe I should have mixed it a little longer but it was perfect for spooning over our favorite ice cream. Hubby was really impressed! I will be making this again but I will cut back on the vanilla extract, personal preference. Thanks for sharing moaa, you have a winner here!!

Super fast, delicious, and fun to make. Also very easy. It yielded 2.5 cups for me and I ended up whipping the egg mixture for closer to 7 minutes. It came out really tasty for ice cream and grilled fluffernutters. I probably won't buy it from stores ever again. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy to make. I may never buy marshmallow fluff ever again. Used with PBM sandwiches.

This is a great recipe. We were out of Marshmallow and I had a hankering for a hot fudge sundae. I used a little less sugar so that it wouldn't get too thick and it turned out perfectly. I will never buy store bought for sundaes again.
