Miracle Whip ~Homemade

Donna Farley


I found 2 recipes for this on line. The comments both said increasing the powdered sugar to 2 Tablespoons made it as sweet as Miracle Whip is. I have not made it, but will forward recipe to my sister to test. She and i have the age old debate best Foods or Miracle Whip often. I added a picture from one of the recipes.

  • 10NOTES: the comments all said it was not sweet enough so they added another Tablespoon powdered sugar, so i included changed recipe to two also added the paprika and garlic one recipe had (and is listed on the MW jar). Here is what one person said:
    This is a very good base recipe for Miracle Whip. I found when I compared it side by side with Miracle Whip, it was not as sweet. So, I added another tablespoon of powdered sugar and that did the trick. Also, Miracle Whip has paprika and garlic in it. So, I added 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic. Tastes just like Miracle Whip to me!!! Good stuff!!
