Kraft® marshmallow creme is the secret ingredient. It's whipped and light. Along with the peanut butter it makes this traditional favorite extra fancy and so easy! (Our family has been making this recipe for peanut butter fantasy fudge around Christmas for as long as I can remember. It's a great gift to friends and acquaintances! We all absolutely love it! Hope you will too!)
