Wow! Now there's an old posting!
Well...since you dug it up, you'll need to try it and give us the heads up on it!
Sure sounds tasty, eh?

Got anything that I can substitute the marshmallow creme for? I can't have gelatin.

The only sub I've heard of for marshmallow creme is mini marshmallows + karo. But again, there's that gelatin issue.... hmmmmmmmmmm.

A side note: For my rice crispies treats I use peanut butter.. but i don't think it will have the same effect for fudge? Hmm...

That's what I was thinking, but I have to go to the store first.

I made it last night. It is addicting!! Very rich and sugary. It reminded my sister of maple sugar. I think I made a mistake, because it was more grainy than fudgy. It still tasted great. Worth the time you spend stirring!

when I first tried this recipe I thought I had made mistake. NO mistake, too rich. Had to salvage by heat ing and pouring of cake or ice cream. I am crazy about pumpkin and spice flavor but this was mistake, at least for us around here. Maybe others like that sweet flavor. Fudge is naturally sweet but this overpowering.

I love it when "old" posts that I've never seen are revived! This sounds like such a gem; happily cutting and pasting for when fall (or a giant pumpkin craving) rolls around.
