Very good recipe. Simple to do, but watch the scorching of the marshmallow crème mixture before removing it from the stove top...very very important. Keep that whisk going to insure proper whisking. I had to turn my heating element down some in the process. However I couldn't find whole cashews, so I just used what I could find at the store. I could have done with more cranberries though. Everyone that tried it liked it a lot. Will make again ;-) but decreasing the vanilla just a tad.
