This Homemade Gingerbread Marshmallow Fluff is so good you could eat it with a spoon!
Today we’re talking all about gifting. It’s almost Christmas if you hadn’t heard.
And more specifically we’re talking about gifting Fluff.
I mean, COME ON! Present of mah dreams!
As you know from this post, I am obsessed with Homemade Marshmallow Fluff.
Of course I used the base recipe from THIS BOOK which you guys should go out and get now now now. If you’ve never had a homemade marshmallow please get on it. Your life will be forever changed.
Actually you should give this Fluff with that book. Best . Present. Ever.
But for today’s topic of Fluff, I added in some spicy-spicy to turn the regular old vanilla into gingerbread fluff.
Yes, for real.
I’ve been dipping cookies, crackers, spreading it on bread and unfortunately dipping and licking my old fangers. I am a gross person. Yes.
And since it’s the season to give..I’ve also included some adorable gift tags that THIS TALENTED GIRL designed for me, so you can make some to pass out!
Seriously, who wouldn’t love a jar of Gingerbread Fluff? A person with no soul, that’s who.
And since none of us have soul-less friends, let’s get to giving.
The fluff just takes a few easy steps.
Grab your candy thermometer out…
Attach it to the side of a small, heavy pot.
Boil some light corn syrup, sugar and water together…
It needs to reach 240°…
Meanwhile whip together 2 egg whites and some cream of tartar until they reach soft peaks…
When the syrup reaches 240° drizzle in a little bit into the egg mixture to temper the egg whites…
You don’t want scrambled fluff, people.
Turn your mixer up to medium high and add the rest of the syrup and your spices. Whip it for about 7 minutes until it’s glossy!
You can make this a few days before you want to put it in jars…or the same day. Whatever works for your schedule.
For the printables this recipe will make about 3 cups of Fluff so you can give three, 8 oz jars!
Just fill them up and pass them out!
But make sure to keep one for your own self and your spoon…
And really quick, I’ve started a Weekly Newsletter I’d love for you to get! It has all the highlights and things you might have missed here at Cookies and Cups!
