Homemade Marshmallow Fluff Recipe from scratch no corn syrup is delicious for filling cup cakes, cakes, or making Fluffernutter Sandwiches from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

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 ones kiddos came down sick so we shared with our favorite neighbors a few Homemade Hostess Cupcakes made with this Marshmallow Fluff recipe. 

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 fill 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.

Here's how I make Marshmallow Fluff without corn syrup: 

Sugar in a saucepan with water being poured in.

Add to a medium/small deep sauce.
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
Heat over medium heat. Do Not Stir The Sugar!
A pan filled with sugar and water and a candy thermometer attached.

Place a candy thermometer on the side of pan but don't touch the bottom of the pan. Heat to 240 degrees.

Egg Whites in a mixing bowl with salt and vanilla extract.

Add to a mixing bowl: 
  • 4 whole Egg Whites (Make sure no egg yolks are in the whites.)
  • Pinch Of Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
Beat over medium-high speed using a whisk attachment until soft peaks form.

Sugar slowly poured into egg whites while mixer runs.

With mixer going over medium-high slowly add remaining 1/4 cup of sugar until egg whites form medium peaks form.

Candy Thermometer at 250 degrees attached to the side of pan in boiling sugar.

Once Sugar mixture reaches 240 degrees (soft ball stage) remove from heat and remove thermometer.

Hot Sugar being poured into beaten Egg Whites in a mixing bowl while mixer runs.

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.

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.

  16. Do we have any alternatives if ever we dont have a candy thermometer? Is there any physical properties to be observed if the mixture is okay or not?

    1. Hi Exzell, The hot sugar should form a soft pliable ball if dropped into ice water. I hope that helps! Have a great weekend!
