My sister and I made this the other day and it is SO delicious! While it does take a little time, it’svery simple to make and tastes so much better than the store bought marshmallow fluff!

  1. With a whisk attachment, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and beat until soft peaks form, set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, add 1/3 cup water, corn syrup, and 2/3 cup sugar.
  4. Cook over medium heat while stirring until the mixture reaches firm ball stage (instructions below) or 248 degrees on a candy thermometer. This step will take about 15 minutes.
  5. Once the corn syrup mixture has reached firm ball stage, turn the mixer onto medium and in a slow steady stream, pour the corn syrup mixture into the beaten egg whites.
  6. Once all of the corn syrup mixture has been added, beat on high for 5 minutes.
  7. Add vanilla extract and beat on high 1 minute
  8. Store in a tightly sealed container
  1. Fill a glass with cold water and drop a small spoonful of the mixture into the cold water. Remove the mixture from the cold water and it should hold its shape, but quickly flatten.
