Last weekend my mom and I were shopping some of our favorite crafting and discount stores when I happened upon the most wonderful book titled ‘Marshmallow Madness’ by Shauna Sever. You might remember that right before Christmas, we made some peppermint marshmallows and I became instantly hooked on the idea of making my own.

I was inspired to try my hand at making some homemade marshmallow cream and am so pleased with the results. You will never buy a jar of marshmallow fluff again, after you’ve tried this recipe.

This recipe is what I use to fill my Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. You’ve got to give those a try!

If you’ve never made your own marshmallow fluff before, prepare to have sticky fingers. You won’t be able to resist dipping your fingers in for a taste.

process

When the syrup is reaches 240 degrees, set the mixer to low and slowly drizzle a tiny bit of syrup, a couple tablespoons’ worth, into the egg whites to warm them. (If you add too much syrup at once, the whites will scramble.) Slowly drizzle in the rest of the syrup and then increase the speed to medium-high. Beat until the marshmallow cream is stiff and glossy, 7 to 9 minutes; toward the end of the beating time, beat in the vanilla. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
