Once I started dreaming about all the flavors of marshmallows that I could make, I wondered if I could make marshmallow fluff also. Everything I read regarding making marshmallow fluff had egg whites in it. Since my marshmallows don’t use egg white, I wanted to figure out how to do it without them. 

It had to be simple. Simple as making marshmallows. And it was. It takes a few minutes longer than making marshmallows, but it’s worth the time to get marshmallow fluff without the extra ingredients. Those extra ingredients always give me concern.

If you’ve read very many of my posts, you know I like food without all the preservatives. I like food from scratch. Marshmallow fluff is just one of many things I’ve learned to make from scratch. Velveeta, mozzarella, breakfast sausage, chocolate syrup, and bisquick mix are just a few of the foods I’ve learned to make myself. Is there a food you’d like to make from scratch? I have a few more I’d like to learn.

Marshmallow fluff isn’t something you normally eat on it’s own. But it is used in lots of recipes including Lucy’s Marshmallow Chocolate Pudding Cookies.  Below the recipe card are some other recipes that use marshmallow fluff. I think I’d like to try making ice cream with it. That sounds like a summer project. A delicious summer project. 

Yield: 6 cups or 25 oz
