  • Substitute Marshmallow Creme for Marshmallows

    Can anyone tell me if it will make a difference in the final product if you substitute marshmallow creme for marshmallows?  If anyone tried it, please let me know. 

    Thank you very much.

     Yes, there will be a difference but it depends on what you're making as to how much of a difference and whether or not it's worth the switch. Marshmallow cream won't set up like marshmallows so your end result will be gooey-er than it would be with plain marshmallows. 

     

    What exactly are you making?

    I have a very difficult time deciphering the line between boredom and hunger.

    I didn't have anything specific in mind.  But I can see where it would be gooey if I used it for Rice Krispies Treats, and can't use it to make Rocky Road Fudge.  Thanks for your response.
