  1. Which company makes a kosher condensed milk? Would Parve coffee whitener work or maybe soy milk?

    • A few companies and brands make it and it is widely available in the baking section of national markets with an OUD certification. Milk and soy milk do not substitute well for this as its a very creamy and thick ingredient. Cream of coconut works but it is exceptionally sweet, pareve, and coconut flavored. I have yet to find a good substitute that is pareve.

  2. I’m afraid I don’t know of a pareve version; this is for that special dairy indulgence.

  3. Is there something missing from this recipe? I wanted to try this as it only had 3 ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly but this never set properly. I even refrigerated it overnight. It came out soft and was greasy. Even after chilling for over 9 hours this was SPREADABLE. Won’t waste ingredients on this recipy again. — Marie

    • Oops! You are right; there is a typo in the recipe. It should say 18 ounces, not 8 ounces. Please don’t give up; it’s worth trying again.

  4. I’m confused?? I have yet to find ANY marshmallows mini or large that are Kosher?? The only product that is marshmallow-ish that’s Kosher is the marshmallow fluff. Can someone tell me if they’ve had any luck finding kosher marshmallows??

    • Kosher marshmallows are available in all kosher markets and even some national markets. Try or other online market for availability.
