You know what this means don't you? One 7 oz jar of Jet Puffed Marshmallow Creme is the key to my all time favorite holiday treat. In fact, I'd really like to make it year round... You guessed it...
Fudge is an oh so rich, sweet, concoction of milk, sugar, butter, chocolate, and marshmallow creme. In other words, it is Heaven. This recipe is the same one used by my mother. It makes about 30-40 servings, or if you're making it for me, it's about 3 servings.
Original Fantasy Fudge-Kraft Foods

1 7-oz. jar Jet Puffed Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or go crazy and use peppermint extract-- I did this time, and I may never go back!
