Once you taste homemade marshmallow fluff (the same thing as marshmallow creme), you won’t want to use anything else for frosting, dips, or a fluffy spread. Smooth and delicious, this dense but airy marshmallow whip is spoon-licking delicious.
Thick and sweet, marshmallow fluff can be used topping for pies, meringue, and cupcakes but is as good in coffee and french hot chocolate.

How to make Homemade Marshmallow Fluff
Make sure all items you use are very clean and contain no oil or grease. You can wipe down your mixing bowl, spatula, whisk, saucepan and spoon with vinegar before using.
- In a medium saucepan, place sugar, corn syrup, and water. Mix well.
- Heat over medium-high heat with a candy thermometer in the pan. Do not stir; just let the hot sugar mixture cook.
- In a separate clean mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar in a mixer until the soft peaks are firm, about 2-3 minutes.
- When the sugar mixture has reached 240 degrees, remove it from the heat. Note: The sugar took about 10 minutes to come up to temperature, but all ranges will be a little different.
- Turn the electric mixer to low and slowly drizzle the sugar into the egg whites.
- When the pan is empty, turn the mixer to high and beat for about 4 minutes. Scrape down the bowl and continue beating for another 4 minutes or until fluffy.
- Add vanilla and beat until cool.
- Use the marshmallow fluff right away or store it at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
