Homemade Marshmallow Fluff From Scratch

Homemade-Marshmallow-Fluff-From-Scratch.jpg
See the filling? Mm mm..Homemade marshmallow fluff, so tasty. I make this on a rare occasion for a treat. We had  our life group last Sunday and I thought I would surprise everyone with these babies, but every one's kiddos came down sick so we shared with our favorite neighbors a few homemade hostess cupcakes. My husband and kids thought they had died and gone to heaven when they new we would have plenty of leftovers! 
The marshmallow fluff would be perfect in a banana fluffer nutter sandwich, over some ice cream for a sundae or to frost a cake. I make these on a rare occasion because it is a little work but so worth it! There is nothing healthy about the sugar to make these but 2 positives of making it yourself is there is no corn syrup and blue food coloring like the packaged product. Also if you use all organic product it will be organic like mine! If you have never made homemade marshmallow fluff now is the time! Whole Wheat Hostess Cupcakes link for the chocolate cupcakes and glaze!

While mixer is on medium slowly drizzle in the hot sugar mixture being careful not to get it on your skin. Keep a bowl of cold water close by in case you happen to get the sugar on your skin.
(Please ignore the stuff in my sink in the back ground, this is my real kitchen and my husband was taking the picture and didn't notice the dishes in the sink..lol)

Continue to beat the Sugar/Egg White mixture over medium speed until stiff peaks form. Lower speed to low and beat until cool enough to handle. About 3 minutes.

  9. Adventurous! I like the idea of it, but I'm not convinced that I can do it! Goodness knows I don't need any help with feeding my sweet tooth too. Once I made it I'd probably just sit there with a spoon. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Wow, that looks so delicious! I've actually made this before... sort of. It's like Italian Meringue buttercream but with no butter. I always wondered what it would be like if I stopped short of adding butter to it! Yum! I'll have to try it! :)
