Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

November 26, 2012





Thanksgiving is done...who's ready for Christmas?! Woohoo!  Ok..I am not.  I am still recovering from Thanksgiving. It's a bit alarming what the human body can consume on one day isn't it?  Especially, when you give yourself a free pass to enjoy yourself.  Thanksgiving was just a lovely day for us. Visiting family, 60 degree weather and enough food to feed a small army.
Now, Christmas.  Just about a month away.  Doesn't seem possible yet.  This recipe is perfect for Christmas baking. Marshmallow fluff..oh..it's a little bit of heaven, isn't it?   We love it here.( I actually caught my husband eating marshmallow fluff out of the jar,with a spoon and he didn't double dip..don't worry).
I didn't even realize that it was possible to make this homemade.  I'm not sure why..but, now, that I do....well, oh..the possibilities are endless.  And this...identical to the jarred version.. Exactly.
Now, you are asking yourself...why is she just showing just a lonely bowl of marshmallow fluff? Well, no fear..this week, look for two more recipes that will include this  homemade marshmallow fluff.  You will not be disappointed :)

Ingredients:
2 egg whites, room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:
With your mixers whisk attachment, whisk together, egg whites and corn syrup on high speed until it doubles in volume. forming soft peaks.  {With a stand mixer, this should take about 5 minutes.  I don't have a stand mixer, but, used the whisk attachment with my hand mixer and it took almost 10 minutes.} Reduce speed and slowly add in powder sugar. Add vanilla and mix until incorporated.
