Have you done a google search for Marshmallow Fluff? It will lead you to the corp. website where you can contact them about where the nearist place you buy it.

I just did a google search on - recipe for marshmallow creme

There are a lot of recipes and it looks simple.

You could try out a different fudge recipe too. There are jillions around here.

I would recommend going to the Eagle brand site and looking for their recipes, easy, just a couple ingredients and killer good.

Last spring I made homemade marshmallow creme and it was wonderful! I'm not a huge marshmallow fan (unless it's on a stick over a fire) and I was impressed by this recipe. It's a recipe by Ina Garten from the Foodnetwork website (I saw the show then did a search for the recipe). It is a super simple recipe but you do need a stand mixer or a heavy duty hand mixer as you let the ingredients beat on high for 15 minutes. If I recall correctly, it is simply gelatin you let bloom in water, sugar and vanilla.

We prepared it like she had on the show, spread over toasted coconut with more coconut over the top, then allowed to set and cut into bite size squares. However, when I scraped it out of the mixing bowl, it was identical to Fluff (my husband mixed some with peanut butter and declared it good!).

Hope that helps!
I'll try to figure out how to do the link thing ...

(edited because I apparently do not know how to spell today!)

I've got a an old peanut-butter and marshmallow creme fudge that I make from time to time - mostly because it is just so fast and easy to make. I use Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme. There is another brand right next to it, but don't recall which. For me, it's in the baking/sugar/spices/oils aisle. I've got a couple of marshmallow creme formulas, but, for me, scratch marmalllow creme isn't worth the effort just to add to fudge.

Debbie, it was just like the jarred stuff until it set up over night. Then it was stiff like the formed marshmallows you buy.

D Blackwell and Alix ... you know that bread recipe floating around that it so easy? This stuff was easier. Bloom the gelatin while you heat the corn syrup, sugar and vanilla then whip it all together in your mixer for 15 minutes. That's it. Done. Trust me, the flavor is wonderful alone (and again, not a big marshmallow fan here) so I can only imagine what it would do for a fudge recipe.

Kraft marshmallow creme

I'm new here...I just finished my marshmallow creme fudge; it isn't cool yet. I purchased my Kaft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme at my Vancouver, B.C. IGA. Like you Debbie, I could not find it, until I ask a woman staff person of a certain age. It was with the ice cream syrups etc. Good luck
