Want to make marshmallow fluff without corn syrup? I don't like to buy products made with corn syrup because it's made from GMO corn.
When I was little, my mom always made the best Christmas fudge. I wanted to make it for my kids, but I didn't want to use the store-bought marshmallow fudge because it's made with GMO corn syrup. This recipe is so easy — you'll never go back the store-bought fluff!
I did a little research online and found out that Marshmallow Fluff is made from powdered egg whites, corn syrup, and fake vanilla (vanillin). These are just cheap versions of real foods.
I knew I could replace powdered egg whites with real egg whites and vanillin with real organic vanilla extract. I just didn't know if it was possible to sub out a natural sweetener like honey for the corn syrup.
I asked on my Facebook page and folks said that yes, they had successfully made marshmallow fluff using honey.
I gave it a go and it was surprisingly easy. What results is exactly like the Marshmallow Fluff you find in the store. But with real food instead of the GMO corn syrup, powdered egg whites and fake vanilla.
