2 large egg whites
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup cold water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
30 Campfire® Fruit Swirlers Marshmallows


30 Campfire® Fruit Swirlers Marshmallows (about 2 cups), cut in fourths for easier melting (I used kitchen shears)

Place egg whites, sugar, corn syrup and water in the top of a double boiler. Beat with a handheld electric mixer for about 1 minute

Place pan over boiling water. Make sure the boiling water does not touch the bottom of the top pan

Beat constantly with an electric mixer on high speed for 7-8 minutes, or until it is stiff and glossy

Beat in vanilla and marshmallows. Continue beating until marshmallows are melted and frosting is smooth; about 2 minutes. Use immediately.

You can substitute 2 cups plain miniature marshmallows for the Campfire® Fruit Swirlers.

This marshmallow frosting will hold up to basic piping. I just snipped the bottom of a piping bag off and piped without an attached tip. You could also use a zip-top bag for this purpose.

This marshmallow frosting is best served the day it is made and tastes best when it is at room temperature.

One batch makes enough to generously frost 18 cupcakes.
