Homemade Marshmallow Creme

Amy Alusa


I was making a cake in one of those silicone cupcake molds for a group of young children my daughter works with (as a part-time nanny). I wanted to put a marshmallow creme filling in it...so I found this recipe, which worked beautifully. It is great Marshmallow Creme, and you can use it whenever you would use Marshmallow Creme. To make a filling see my other post: Marshmallow Creme Filling. Homemade Marshmallow Creme Filling

Yield: 2 cups

Stove Top


Add to Grocery List

  • 3/4 c
    granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c
    light corn syrup
  • 1/4 c
  • 1 pinch
  • 2
    egg whites (room temperature)
  • 1/4 tsp
    cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    vanilla extract

How to Make Homemade Marshmallow Creme


  1. 1. Combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  2. 2. While the sugar mixture is boiling, add the egg whites and cream of tartar to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. The egg whites should be ready and waiting when the sugar mixture reaches 240 degrees F. If the egg whites reach soft peaks before the sugar mixture reaches its temperature, turn off the mixer.
  3. 3. Once the sugar mixture reaches 240 degrees F, turn the mixer speed to low and very slowly drizzle the syrup down the side of the mixer bowl. Once all of the syrup has been added, increase the speed to medium-high and beat until stiff, glossy peaks form and the mixture has cooled substantially, about 7 to 9 minutes. Add the vanilla extract during the last minute or two of beating.
  4. 4. Use immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
