How to turn Marshmallows into Marshmallow Creme?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've read online recipes that say just to melt the marshmallows & use them melted as you would creme & Other online recipes that say to melt so many marshmallows with corn syrup. But Don't marshmallows have corn syrup already added? I just don't want to add extra sweetness if it doesn't need it to become marshmallow creme.? hmmroll

I don't think I would add corn syrup.  I believe you are correct that marshmallows contain corn syrup and they are already sweet enough.  But, thinking how they melt up for Rice Krispie Bars, I think that method would give good results.   
I don't think anything more is needed.

If you try it, please let us know how it works.

Most experiences I had making marshmallow creme were a long time ago, but did not involve melting marshmallows. I YAHOOed marshmallow creme and got this recipe from Food Network. Believe me, if THEY post it it is goooooood...

Ingredients
6 tablespoons water
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
4 large egg whites
Pinch salt
Pinch cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Directions
In a small saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer, bring the water, corn syrup and 3/4 cup sugar to 246 degrees.

In the meantime, in a completely clean, dry mixing bowl, with and electric mixer, whisk the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar until creamy and foamy, about 2 minutes. Still whisking, sprinkle in the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and continue to whisk until the whites hold very soft peaks, about 2 minutes. While mixing on slow speed, carefully drizzle in the hot syrup. Turn the mixer to high and whisk until thick, fluffy and just warm, about 7 minutes. Turn the mixer to low and whisk in the vanilla.



But I also found this link to the creation of marshmallow creme. Coming from a family where my grandfather invented rolling chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream commercially into a "cake roll" I revere history, the start of things.

Thanks for all your info. But the recipe I was wanting to make was Goat Milk fudge (since I have a doe in milk smile ). But the first recipe I tried didn't include any marshmallow creme or marshmallows & from following that recipe to a "T", I think I invented the "Goatmilk -Rock- Candy." lolhmm

        So then I wanted to make the recipe on the ADGA.org website but had no marshmallow creme, just marshmallows. & it came out not setting when I added margarine along with the marshmallows, so marshmallows alone is prob what was needed. So needless to say I got marshmallow creme this wkend & made the ADGA.org recipe & it came out exactly like it was supposed to (Hubby tested & approved wink ). Thank goodness for a steady supply of milk. wink Thanks for all your info though. smile
