Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

This is a super easy way to make your own marshmallow fluff at home. It doesn’t have preservatives, so don’t expect to store for long periods of time, but you can easily whip it up and use it in a recipe. I wanted to use it in an ice cream recipe, so I simply made it right before I churned the ice cream. Then, after the ice cream was done churning, I just stirred it in. You will see more of this in a post coming soon…

Part of the reason I wanted to make the fluff from scratch is because I had egg whites left over from this pie, so I wanted a way to use them. Making some sort of marshmallow thing seemed like the perfect idea. It took hardly any time and it was as sweet as I wanted it to be, but not achingly so like the jarred ones can be.

Directions for Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

  • 5 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together the egg whites and sugar in your stand mixer bowl. Place over a saucepan of simmering water (like a double boiler) and whisk until the mixture reaches a temperature of 160 degrees (F).

Remove from the heat and immediately begin whisking with your stand mixer until stiff peaks form.

This will take 5-10 minutes. While it is whisking, add the salt and vanilla. You can taste the mixture to see if it needs more salt or vanilla. Serve with ice cream, cookies, etc. Keep chilled when not using.
