I’m a sucker for marshmallow things. S’mores, rocky road recipes, everything! Now when it comes to the cream, it’s even worse, and I could eat it straight all day. Ya, I’m terrible, I know! I really hate buying the expensive stuff at the store, though…and a lot of it seems to be wasted in the jar that I can’t scrape out. Well, this Homemade Marshmallow Cream isn’t just one of my new go-to recipes, but it’s also one of Hubby’s favorite things for me to make!

You don’t even have to buy funky ingredients, which makes it even better. 5 things, that’s all you need! I highly recommend using a stand mixer for this, or your wrist will get pretty tired!


  • 1 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3 Large Egg Whites
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla


  1. Put the sugar, egg whites, water and cream of tartar in a bowl (preferably a mixer bowl, if possible). Whisk until foamy, about 2 minutes. Place this bowl into a large pot of simmering water over medium heat. Whisk about 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove the bowl from the stove. Beat on high power about 15 minutes, or until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla until mixed in.
  3. Store covered, in the fridge.
