    Can you use marshmallow cream instead of marshmallows?

      I have not tried heating the puff and am not sure how that would alter the recipe.
      If you do make it, I’d love to hear feedback.

      Elenochka, no need to refrigerate. It sets rather quick, about 30 minutes and it’s ready to be cut. 🙂 My munchkins sometimes just dig right in while it’s still warm and gooey;) he he
