      I made two batches of this recipe with my Dutch oven and wisk to stir. The 1st batch I made as is written. It turned out smooth rich tasting fudge. The 2nd batch I made as is written but adding 2 tablespoons brown sugar along with the white,1/4 cup creamy peanut butter,1/2 chopped walnuts and added a few extra marshmallows and whipped it with my wisk till it was smooth and creamy. Maybe took a full minute to mix after the cooking milk,sugar,butter part. This made some of the BEST peanut butter chocolate frosting for my cake. Thanks! Yum.

      I agree with some of the other reviewers that it takes significantly longer to make than the 5 minutes mentioned in the title. But the finished product tastes just fine! I didn't notice a grainy texture at all. FUDGE HINT: Don't use stale marshmallows! It makes the mixture veeerry hard to stir, and the fudge comes out very chewy, not melty. Thanks for the recipe, FarahC!

      Even though I was not fooled by the "FIVE MINUTE" title, I still dislike this recipe and have had better fudge. If you missed your upper body workout today, this recipe is for you. Otherwise, go with a marshmallow creme ingredient fudge recipe. If you still insist, go with miniature marshmallows, not large ones. I think this recipe is grainy because it uses marshmallows, no matter if they are fresh or stale.
