Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

I had all the ingredients for s'mores except marshmallows, so I pulled out an old recipe that I had tucked in a binder.  I have no idea where it originated, but I'm sure glad it did!

Homemade Marshmallow Fluff
(Makes approximately 10 cups)

3 egg whites
2 cups light corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk egg whites, corn syrup and salt, about 5 minutes until thick and fluffy. Slowly add in sugar beating on low speed until well blended. Add vanilla and mix until blended.
This recipe may be frozen for later use. Remove from freezer and stir until fluff is mixed.

It can be kept in the refrigerated for up to 1 week. Stir well with a spoon before serving.

You can use this in any recipe that calls for marshmallow creme/fluff.
