Homemade Marshmallow Creme - DELICIOUS!


OMG won't even cut it here. This is by far, hands down, no doubt about it - THE BEST Marshmallow Creme recipe out there! I honestly didn't believe it when they said you could easily just sit there with a spoon and just eat it... until I did! Not only is this super yummy, but it is SUPER easy to make. It called for a candy thermometer but my regular kitchen thermometer worked just fine!! Make sure to PIN this on your Pinterest board so you can have it for later.

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Directions
  • In a small saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Heat mixture over moderately high heat, whisking occasionally, until mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer (remember I used a regular kitchen thermometer and it worked just fine). Meanwhile, in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, whip together egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form.
  • Once sugar mixture reaches 240 degrees, remove from heat, set stand mixer containing egg white mixture on low speed and carefully pour about 2 Tbsp of hot sugar mixture down the side of the bowl into the egg white mixture. With mixer running, slowly pour remaining syrup down the side of the bowl into the egg white mixture, increase speed to medium-high and whip mixture until stiff glossy peaks form, about 8 - 10 minutes. Stir in vanilla during the last minute of mixing. 
  • Use immediately or store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to two weeks.I am going to make this again and use this for indoor s'mores - Mmmmmmm!!!
