Marshmallow Fluff

I don’t know why Fall makes me think of Marshmallow Fluff, but it does.

This delicious confectionary concoction is simply wonderful on nut butter sandwiches, stuffed into Whoopie Pies, mixed with cream cheese for a creamy fruit dip and even all by itself by the spoonful.

Commercial Marshmallow Fluff contains all kinds

"Marshmallow Fluffiness"

Pure Deliciousness!

of artificial additives and colorings, but you don’t have to settle for such nastiness. Just make your own with this easy recipe and enjoy all natural “Fluff” within minutes. Oh, and did I mention that it’s naturally Gluten Free!

3 egg whites
2 cups light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

In large bowl of electric mixer, add egg whites, corn syrup and salt. Beat on high speed until doubled in volume. On low speed, add powdered sugar and mix until well blended. Add vanilla extract and mix gently.

Your homemade Marshmallow Fluff is now ready to use. Refrigerate in a covered container for up to 2 weeks.
