Homemade Marshmallow Fluff Recipe

Homemade Marshmallow Fluff is very easy to make, so delicious, and much better tasting than the store version.  Remember that Marshmallow Fluff does not have to come just in a large from the grocery store!  This Marshmallow Fluff is light and creamy.

This is the best recipe that I have ever found to substitute for the store-bought Marshmallow Fluff.  Use this homemade marshmallow fluff/cream in any recipe that calls for marshmallow fluff.  It is so good that you will be eating it or trying not to eat it straight out of the bowl as it is an “eat straight from the container” recipe.

    Could this be used to replace Cool Whip in recipes? I live in Australia where we cannot get Cool Whip and there are recipes I would love to try but can’t ???? If not do you have a recipe that resembles Cool Whip?

      Cool whip is a frozen whipped cream. You can replace it with any whipped topping for recipes.

      Cool whip is NOT frozen whipped cream. It’s a non dairy whipped topping made vegetable oil and gelatin. However, you can replace it with whipped cream, but your recipe may taste different because cool whip has a different kind of oily consistency, as opposed to a milk fat mouth feel. I’ve seen the recipe for homemade cool whip and you can trust me that it’s a fiddley pain in the butt. I feel your frustration; seems like every darned American dessert recipe calls for cool whip! Lol! My advice is to try the recipes with whipped cream. It’ll probably taste a million times better without the chemical fluff of non dairy whipped topping
