Have you ever done or bought something but did not know why? A few weeks ago, I bought some marshmallow creme/fluff because I wanted fudge. Then I kept looking for a recipe that used marshmallow creme. I didn’t find any recipes that I would want to make.
The other day I was looking for a Sharpie marker for something. I sometimes keep a couple in my cookbook cupboard so I looked in there. I saw a random recipe card. When I pulled it out, it was a recipe for my grandma’s microwave fudge. Guess what it called for?
MARSHMALLOW CREME / FLUFF!!!!!!!!:)
Back story of the recipe card – When I was in Walt Disney World on the College Program, my grandma sent me easy recipes so I could have a taste of home while I was away.
She also sent me a recipe for her White Salad.
It was nice to read the recipe card written in her handwriting. The 8th anniversary of her death is on Christmas Eve so I feel like she is with me while I’m baking and making this Christmas season.
I ended up taking it to a party and then to church. Everyone who tried it loved it.
Easy and yummy – It’s my kind of recipe.
