Ladies I am here to tell ya this is the easiest and most delicious fudge you will ever eat. My sister, Sue, found this recipe and I was hooked when she gave me a sample of it not long ago. There are several options..so have fun with it and enjoy! Talk about simple!
1DO NOT use "whipped" frosting in a can, be sure to use regular frosting. Line 8 inch square pan with foil extending foil over edges lightly butter foil, melt chips in large saucepan over very low heat stirring until smooth; remove from heat and stir in frosting. Pour into 8 inch foiled lined pan and refrigerate for 1 hour.
This step #1 is also the basic directions for each of the following fudge recipes below...

Do not add marshmallows while fudge mixture is still extremely hot. (I am not sure about the pink vanilla frosting..I believe you need to add food coloring to achieve the pink color for the vanilla frosting in the tub...)
