Anyway, I don't have a stand mixer so I used a hand mixer. I don't think I let it mix enough to be honest. But my hand was starting to hurt, so I kind of gave up. But it tasted great! I think it just could've been a bit more stiff, so I'd say the important part of this is making sure there get to be stiff peaks!
Homemade Marshmallow Fluff-adapted from How Sweet It Is
Total Time: 10 Minutes
Serves I have no idea...I didn't measure it. More than tomorrow's recipe
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2/3 cup white corn syrup
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch salt
Whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar in a large bowl until white and fluffy. In a small sauce pan, heat corn syrup, sugar and water over medium heat until mixture boils. Let boil about 5 minutes, or until temperature reaches 240 degrees with a candy thermometer.
Carefully pour the hot mixture into the egg whites while beating with a whisk attachment or hand mixer. Add in the vanilla and salt. Continue to mix for about 5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Store the remainder in the fridge.
