  • Make sure to stir the mixture until the Jello is dissolved before you add in the marshmallows.
  • 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups can be used in mini marshmallows. It depends on how much you want with your Jello.
  • Heat up the marshmallows in intervals stirring until the marshmallows are fully melted.
  • Slice your jello rolls as big or as small as you would like. Then roll up. They will unravel a bit, but you can put a toothpick in to hold them in place.

Our store was out of mini marshmallows so I bought a jar of the Marshmallow Creme. I can’t find anyplace that gives the equavilant of how much creme equals a cup of mini’s. Can anyone help?


Saturday 3rd of April 2021

Hey Alice - a 7-ounce jar of marshmallow creme may be used in place of 4 cups of miniature marshmallows or 40 large marshmallows. You will use around 1.75 ounces for a cup of mini marshmallows, or go a bit more if you want extra. Hope that helps.
