Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

YUM...Fluff!  Who doesn't love fluff?  It's great for many things including on peanut butter sandwiches (fluffernutters), on desserts, and with hot chocolate, just to name a few.  And it's really easy to make yourself.  Here's how


3 large egg whites
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar
1/3 cup water
3/4 cup corn syrup (not the high fructose kind)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Beat egg whites together until frothy.  Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form.

2. Meanwhile, combine water, corn syrup, and 2/3 cup of sugar.  Cook over medium heat until soft-ball stage, or 240 degrees using a candy thermometer.

If you don't have a candy thermometer, like me, fill a small cup with water and a few cubes of ice.  You need really cold water to test.  Drop a few drops of the hot syrup into the water and then pick up with your fingers.  If you can roll it into a soft ball it is finished.  In the picture below, the syrup did not quite roll into a ball but is almost there.

3.  When syrup is at the soft ball stage, pour into egg mixture.  Be careful, the syrup is quite hot!  Mix on high and add vanilla. 

 Continue mixing for about 5 minutes until it looks like marshmallow fluff.

4.  Store in the refrigerator for up to a month.
