Ludy's Kitchen Cooking Tip:
Using marshmallow fluff can be a sticky business. To make it easier to spread, transfer the fluff into a bowl and microwave for 10 seconds or just enough to heat it up so that it can be spread easily.
Make cooking a lot easier and more enjoyable by using good quality silicone baking mats. Not only are silicone mats sturdy and durable. Because they're non-stick, you can also cut your clean-up time in half.
