Fix for Chewy Fudge?

I made my mom's marshmallow fudge. Instead of using MM creme I used whole marshmallows. The fudge set and tastes good, but is chewy and very dense which is not what I was going for.


Any suggestions to repair this batch?

Oh do I have the best peanut butter fudge recipe for you. It is so unbelievably creamy and is foolproof. Comes out great every time. Never gritty or chewy.

3 cups of sugar, 12oz. of Jiffy peanut butter ( I like Jiffy the best), 1/4 cup of clear Karo syrup, 1-7oz. jar of marshmallow cream, 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract (do not use imitation vanilla), 2 Tablespoons of butter, and 2/3 cups of evaporated milk. In a medium pan mix together the evaporated milk, sugar, Karo syrup, and butter.


Stirring constantly until a rolling boil. Boil 3 minutes and only 3 minutes. If you cook it longer it is hard to stir in the pb and MM cream. Remove from heat and add the vanilla, marshmallow cream, and peanut butter. Stir until the marshmallow cream and peanut butter are melted and incorporated. Pour into a buttered pan. Cool and cut into squares and enjoy!

I did the same thing and all I tasted was the powdery mini marshmallow in my fudge. On my second batch I discovered the trick of making marshmellows into marshmallow cream, and this time my fudge turned out much better! Truth is, you can never fudge, fudge! Everyone is still bound to eat it all up!


For 7 ounces of mini marshmallow =1 and 1/8 cup add those to microwaveable bowl and be sure to add one Tablspoon of corn syrup, heat for 30 seconds, take out and stir with a silicone spatula! Bravo! You can even make your own marshmallows according to Anton from Food network! And That's about as from scratch as it gets!
