I made this as described but did not pre melt the marshmallows. I just stired them into the hot liquid and they melted away. Read More

This was very simple, and agreed, its very tasty. Also agree that marshmallows don't need to be chopped or pre melted; however, with that being said, this is not a good marshmallow topping for ice cream. It would be great for cakes, sweet potatoes, or other desserts, but not for ice cream. It gets stringy and chewy when it hits the cold ice cream... not what a good topping should do. So for that reason, because its listed as an ice cream topping recipe, I have to give it only two stars. Read More

I loved this recipe because I have always been trying to make marshmallow topping for ice cream and had never figured out how to do it. I love marshmallow flavor so that is why I liked it so much. I probably would not add vanilla next time as it turned the color to a beige. It is a little stringy when cold but I found if I heated it in the microwave for a few seconds it was easier to put over the ice cream. Thanks Read More

I have been looking for a marshmallow topping for years. I have tried many recipes but this is by far the best! This recipe brought back fond memories of going with my Dad to Bailey's Ice Cream Shop in Boston for a hot fudge sundae dripping with marshmallow sauce running down the sides of the bowl onto a plate. Fantastic! Read More

Hi! I tried this recipe not to top an ice cream but to top a fruit pizza. This is a nice alternative to a marshmallow creme if this is not available. It blends well with cream cheese. Thanks. Read More

Better than the store bought fluff. I used this to top the too much chocolate cake from this site. Read More
