Does anyone remember if it is a 7 oz. jar or a 13 oz. (or larger size) jar?
I have recipe from 1967 and have EXACT question as JUNE’s. What size was the jar in 1967??
it is 3/4 of a 13 oz jar. The recipe is also on the back of all the 13oz plastic containers.
I have a recipe card with a notation of 1 jar Fluff (10.5 oz). When I copied the recipe in the early 70′s the brand that I used was Fluff. I am now living in an area where they don’t sell this brand. I can’t get that size jar in the local brand. Jar sizes for Fluff may also have changed but back then the Fluff jar was 10.5 oz. Hope that this helps June & Nance
This fudge is absolutely the best!!!!!! I hate fudge but I have recently tried it, and MMM MMMMM MMMMMMM I LOVE IT!!!!
I think they changed this fudge recipe since 2007. I used to use 3/4 of a large container of Fluff and now it calls for the whole container. I also used a large can of the evaporated milk and now it says 2 small (5 oz) cans. Sugar, salt & morsels are the same. We are well known for making this fudge this time of year. We have been making it for years. Our first batch came out lumpy. Hmmm. Now we are searching the web for any news about the recipe.
PS. The large container of Fluff is 16 oz. The recipe is on the container. Wouldn’t you know I sent all the old containers to be recycled this past summer.
If you can’t find fluff what can i use
I have made this recipe using marshmallows, instead of fluff. Turns out great. Just stir them in after the sugar, milk and butter is all done cooking.
It really doesn’t matter if you use a couplmaile ounces more or less of the fluff.
It still turns out Just grab a jar of any size and dump it in.
Theyy did change the recipe and also the size (number of ounces), and ingredietns of the fluff. It saves 10 stinkin calories per piece and its terrible! You cant even go back to your normal recipe because the fluff itself is different. Brother!
