YALL! This recipe is amazing. I am making it for my coffee but also for hot chocolate. I am hosting a lot in the next few weeks, and this is one thing I can make ahead and just have on hand to add something special and thoughtful to those gatherings. Did I mention it is next level delicious? Because it really is! I haven't had marshmallow fluff in over a decade because the ingredients on the back of the jar are unreadable. So this is a treat!
Natural Marshmallow Fluff Recipe
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup water
*Need candy thermometer
Add the sugar, water, and maple syrup to a small sauce pan. Put the sauce pan on medium high heat. Do not stir until it starts boiling.
While that is starting its process, go ahead and separate 2 egg yolks from their whites. Add the egg whites and cream of tartar to a mixing bowl. If using a stand mixer, use the beater attachment, and beat the egg whites to medium peaks. Stop the mixer when the egg whites reach the right consistency. This only takes a few minutes.
When the sugar mixture is boiling, give it a stir. Add your thermometer to the liquid and you need it to reach 240 degrees Fahrenheit. When it reaches that temperature, you will need to add it slowly to the egg whites. Turn the mixer back on, and slowly pour the sugar mixture in a thin stream and beat them together until the temperature of the marshmallow fluff becomes room temperature. This part will take more time, like 6-7 minutes or so.
When it is done, scoop out a big dollop and eat it...thats first thing. It is so good!
You can store the marshmallow fluff in a container with tight fitting lid.
I put it in the fridge and should be good for about a week!
I am including a video to help you see the process! I am such a visual learner, and videos help me so much! So hopefully it helps you too! Also I couldn't find my candy thermometer, so my video is using a meat thermometer with a little bit of a glitchy screen. We can laugh about it, because it seems like every time I make a video lately, it is so not perfect, but it is authentic to who I am. Use what you got, and don't let perfect be the enemy of good. Did you know Voltaire said that?
