Homemade Marshmallow Fluff

Recently Dan and I were perusing the freezer aisles during one of our frequent Target visits (yes, we go to Target more than is probably healthy—it’s a bonding experience) when he started soliloquizing about the fatal flaw in Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream. It would be his favorite flavor, apparently, if only the chocolate ice cream were switched out for vanilla. “Oh, I can do that,” I said, and immediately wanted to pull those words right back into my mouth.

While I don’t advocate that a sane person undertake the task of making homemade fudge, caramel sauce, marshmallow fluff, and vanilla ice cream to create your husband’s dream ice cream flavor, one of those components is completely do-able in less time than it takes to try on a Liberty of London dress in one of those crazy Target particleboard dressing rooms.

May I present you with my recipe for the world’s easiest homemade marshmallow fluff. Use it for homemade fluffernutters, fold it into your vanilla ice cream along with some toasted coconut for a pseudo-macaroon sensation, spread it on chocolate bars and graham crackers and go to town with a kitchen torch.

Or, you know, go whole hog and make homemade Phish Food ice cream. It’s in the freezer right now, waiting for Dan’s verdict. I’ll keep you posted.
