This recipe for homemade marshmallow fluff is healthier and more cost-efficient than the store-bought variety. With a smooth vanilla taste and a creamy texture, this marshmallow spread is perfect for serving on everything from chocolate cake to fresh fruit.
To make the homemade marshmallow fluff, you will need water, light corn syrup, granulated sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar and pure vanilla extract. To begin, combine the water, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan and heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs whites until they form soft peaks and gradually add in the cream of tartar. Fold the sugar mixture into the egg whites and then add the vanilla extract. Continue beating the mixture until stiff peaks form and then immediately store in an airtight container.
