Do you ever dream of floating on a cloud? Soaring high above the troubles of the world and enjoying a moment of peace on a soft and fluffy white bubble? There is something dreamy about clouds and something dreamy about fluffy white things like soft fresh snow..and marshmallow fluff.
Marshmallow fluff, for many of us, is a treat from childhood that seem impossible to recreate in our own kitchens. If you have never heard of it, it is a very sweet, spreadable, marshmallow like confection. It is popular in Northeastern United States, Canada and in some European areas. It is also used to create a fluffer nutter sandwich. Fluffernutter is a sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow crème. This has been proposed as the official state sandwich of Massachusetts. In addition to this, marshmallow fluff can also be spread on graham crackers to emulate ‘smores. You can also use fluff as substitute to frost a cake since it is very sweet and fluffy like the icing.
The main ingredients in making marshmallow fluff are corn syrup, sugar syrup, vanilla flavor and egg white. This delicious homemade marshmallow recipe is easy to make and you can use this on any recipe that calls for marshmallow fluff. What I like about homemade confection making is that you can choose and buy your own ingredients. In my opinion, organic baking ingredients make big difference on the health and nutrient intakes that we are bringing into our bodies. When the ingredients are made in bulk in a factory to sell in massive quantities in the grocery store, then often times the lowest quality, lowest nutrient ingredients are bought in order for the companies to make a profit. We can't blame them for wanting to make a profit, but if we can make these delicious treats in our own homes and enjoy them in moderation, then we get to choose the ingredients from trusted sources that have higher nutrients and less chemical processing.
