The Best Marshmallow Frosting Recipe From Scratch

With this recipe, you will be able to take the things you love about them to your baking, including them on your frosting! This is the best marshmallow frosting recipe from scratch you can find!

Let’s get started!


01 2 large egg whites 

02 1 cup granulated sugar

03 2 teaspoons light corn syrup

04 1/3 cup cold water

05 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Separate the egg whites from the yolks, making sure that no yolk is mixed in with the whites.


Inside a heat-safe bowl (you could use the pot of your stand mixer, if you own one), beat the whites together with the corn syrup, sugar and water for one minute until everything is combined. Make sure the inside of the bowl where you are mixing is totally dry before adding the ingredients.


Set up a double boiler. You will need a pot with boiling water on top of where you can put the heat-safe bowl you were using in step 2. This will help the sugar dissolve into the egg whites, heating them up without cooking them through.


Place the heat-safe bowl on top of the pot with boiling water, making sure the boiling water does not touch the bottom of the container. Beat with an electric mixer for 7 to 8 minutes on medium.
