Your Questions About Recipes Using Marshmallows Marshmallow Cream

Carol asks…

Can I substitute regular marshmallows for marshmallow cream?

I’m making Fruit Dip. The recipe calls for strawberry cream cheese and marshmallow cream. You just mix it together and use it as a dip for fresh fruit. Has anyone ever made this before, and if so, have you used regular melted marshmallows instead of the marshmallow cream? The store I went to is out of the marshmallow cream, so I thought I would be able to still make it with melted marshmallows. Would I need to add anything to the melted marshmallows?

Admin answers:



7 oz. Jar, 2 1/8 cups
For 1 cup marshmallow cream heat 16 large or 160 miniature marshmallows + 2 tsp corn syrup in the top of a double boiler.

Jenny asks…

Substituting marshmallow cream for marshmallows?

In my S’More Bar recipe it calls for 14 full marshmallows but all I have is marshmallow cream…how much should I use? You end up melting it in a pot, so I don’t think consistency will matter, but i don’t know!

Admin answers:

I’d say about a tablespoon would be about right

Paul asks…

A great peanut butter fudge recipe not using marshmallow cream?

So, I am dying for some delicious peanut butter fudge and my children would love to have some as well!! I don’t have any marshmallow cream ( I went to the grocery store and completely forgot it), but I do have marshmallows if need be. What we do have: marshmallows, peanut butter, sugar, milk, margarine and vanilla. So, if you have a recipe where I can all of some of these ingredients, I would greatly appreciate it!! I’d like to have a very yummy recipe, I’ve googled it and can’t find one that suits my needs, if you have your grandmother’s recipe or maybe just a favorite of your own!!

Admin answers:

Why don’t you just melt the marshmallows slowly until you have 7 ounces like my recipe calls for, and it will turn out great….

World’s Best Peanut Butter Fudge

4 cups white sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
12 ounces peanut butter
2/3 cup all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS–Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish, set aside.
In a saucepan, combine sugar, milk, and butter. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the marshmallow creme and peanut butter. Gradually stir in the flour. Spread into the prepared pan, and let cool.

Lisa asks…

can i use the marshmallow cream insted of melting the marshmallow for the marshmallow fondant recipe?

they sell marshmallow cream in a jar can i just use that instead of melting a bag of marshmallows?
if so what size jar do i use??

Admin answers:

Yes! Here’s a recipe:

Fluff Fondant
In small bowl mix one 7 1/2-oz. Jar Marshmallow Fluff with 1/4 tsp. Vanilla. Gradually stir in enough confectioners’ sugar (about 2 c.) until stiff enough to knead. Knead until mixture loses stickiness, adding more confectioners’ sugar if necessary. Put fondant in a bowl or jar; place a damp cloth over it and cover tightly. Store in a cool place 2-3 days before using . Makes 3 ½ cups.

It’s really, really sticky, and you will not be able to efficiently mix it in a stand or hand mixer, best to do it by hand and use enough powdered sugar to lose the stickiness–it will take a while, don’t give up on it!

James asks…

how can i use mini marshmallows instead of marshmallow cream in a fudge recipe?

Admin answers:

6-7 Ounce Size of Marshmallow Creme/Fluff = (1 Jar),
To substitute, use 2 cups mini-marshmallows,
carefully heated to melt stage, then use as would have done with the “Cream”.
