Full Answer

Although sold commercially, homemade marshmallow cream is fairly easy to make. It only requires a few ingredients and is ready in about 30 minutes, when following the steps below...


  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup or honey
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Making the Marshmallow Cream:

  1. Mix the cream of tartar and egg whites
  2. Add cream of tartar and egg whites to a mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to whisk the mixture. Add 2/3 teaspoons of sugar and whisk until soft peaks form. Set aside.

  3. Mix the remaining ingredients
  4. Add corn syrup or honey, water and remaining sugar to a small saucepan. Mix well and cook on medium-high heat until the mixture boils. Stir occasionally and cook until mixture reaches between 242 and 248 degrees Fahrenheit measured on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.

  5. Combine the egg and syrup mixtures
  6. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the hot syrup to the egg white mixture. Increase speed to high and mix for 5 minutes. Add vanilla and mix for another minute until the mixture resembles marshmallow cream.
