Easy Marshmallow Frosting

Hey there friends!!

Today I’m participating with some blog buddies in The Pinterest Challenge.

If you’re wondering what that is, it’s a group of awesome bloggers who create projects they’ve actually pinned. I’m their guest “Pinhead” of the month, and I’m excited to share with you the recipe I did.

Well, last week I shared the Free Transformers Cupcake Toppers with ya that I made for my nephew’s birthday party. Along with the toppers I obviously made cupcakes but wanted to change things up a bit. I decided I wanted to use Marshmallow Frosting.  I did a few google searches but found only ones that involved egg whites and decided I needed a quick and Easy Marshmallow Frosting. I had remembered I saw one on Pinterest one day. It was from Just a Pinch. I usually modify all recipes, but this one I just added a little vanilla because I didn’t want to mess anything up. :)

    Kristyn,
    Oh, I love marshmallow frosting!!! I’ve seen recipes for marshmallow frosting before, but they had eggs in it. I love your egg free recipe. So easy! Thanks for sharing! :D Hope you have a great day! :D

    Is there a difference in the Marshmallow Creme and the Marshmallow Fluff? Where do you get the Fluff?

    • 5

      you get the fluff in the same isle as like peanut butter and jam/jelly and that kind of stuff.:)

    • 6

      It’s a regional thing. Crème is more Western; Fluff is available in East and South. TExtures differ, but I’ve never seen Fluff so all I can say it that my friends who have seen both say that it’s lighter and fluffier, while crème is denser and stickier.

    That is easy! I love it. I’ll have to try it sometime soon!

    hi, love your site! how many cupcakes will this frost?
    thanks!

  5. 9

    this frosting is delicious! i may or may not have eaten the leftovers by the spoonful i the middle of the night….. its like marshmallowy but whippy and buttery and wonderful! my new favorite frosting :) i love your site!

  6. 10

    Will this recipie toast up or turn slightly brown if flame is applied? I love the look of toasted marshmallow frosting.

  7. 11

    Hi! I will definitely try this, sounds great! Just one comment regarding the “no eggs policy” here…. I’ve never actually seen a jar of marshmallow fluff, but I’m pretty sure it contains egg whites. That is why other recipes tell you to use eggs – because with those recipes, you basically make the marshmallow fluff from scratch. Just saying, in case some of you want to avoid eggs for medical reasons.

    Marshmellow Fluff has egg in it!

  9. 13

    Mine came out really wet. No way this could stand up on a cupcake. I even added a second container of fluff. It was still very wet and runny. Not happy!

    • 14

      Mine did the same thing… Maybe I used creme instead of fluff? If there is a difference… Mine was more like a glaze but still yummy

  10. 15

    Mine came out really REALLY thick and sticky and it was really hard to spread. What happened?

  11. 16

    Hi there! I Thanks for the recipe, it was very easy to make. I just made it but I’m not sure if it came out right. It looks good, but it tastes like only butter and it’s kind of disgusting. Would I be ok to add more fluff or would it not change the flavor?

    • 17

      Mine tasted like just butter and the consistency is very buttery. I tried adding more powdered sugar and some milk. It helped a little but I didn’t think it tasted like marshmallow at all. I loved how it spread though, it was very easy to decorate with.

  12. 19

    Has anyone tried this with less butter! A cup seems like a lot. Looks delicious, though!

    Shonie Castaneda :

    Can you bake a cake ahead of time, ice it with the Easy Marshmallow Frosting, then freeze it? If so, if you color the icing(to decorate), will it bleed after taking it out of the freezer?

    • 21

      You know what… Unfortunately, I couldn’t tell ya. I have never tried it. If you do end up trying it, let me know how it goes so I can know for the future. Good luck!

  14. 22

    I wonder if this is similar to a recipe I have that contains Cream Cheese mixed with Marshamellow Fluff. I haven’t made it in a long time but it was great as a fruit dip at parties.

  15. 24

    Can you add food coloring?

    • 25

      Yes, you can! I would just make sure you don’t add too much so it the frosting stays a more thick consistency. :)

  16. 26

    Mine came out great! Fantastic! For those that said theirs came out runny, you didn’t something wrong. Check your ingredients and measurements again. Make sure you are using fluff.

  17. 28

    Sorry phone typo… Not didnt*** you did do something wrong

  18. 29

    This is really good and really easy. Those who are saying that it is runny are definitely doing something wrong, and if it’s too thick try mixing it some more. My 14 year old daughter made it with no problem!

  19. 31

    Well hello there :) I would like to know how long my this be stored for ?

    • 32

      I’ve actually never tried storing it and have made it right before using it. I’d imagine it would be good in a closed container in the fridge for at least a week or two.

  20. 33

    Hello,

    Thanks for the great recipe! I’m wondering if you meant to say a HALF cup of butter? It tasted like straight butter, so I kept adding sugar and fluff and eventually milk, but nothing could make it taste better. Am I the only one who thought it was so buttery? It looked so good, and I wanted to like it. Any advice?

  21. 34

    How many cupcakes can you frost with it?

  22. 36

    Thank you SO MUCH, I’ve been looking for a recipe and this is PERFECT!!!! THANKS!

    Do you use unsalted butter?

  24. 40

    Is this also good on a very humid day. I know I will love this. I am a marshmallow freak!

  25. 42

    Can you make this with dairy free “butter”? We use Earth Balance because my son is allergic to dairy and I’m trying to find a dairy free icing recipe that actually tastes good.

  26. 44

    I made this marshmallow icing according to the instructions with 1 cup of butter despite thinking it was way too much butter and unfortunately it was. The icing was not very good. I checked some other marshmallow recipies such as Kraft and they call for 1/4 cup of butter instead. Perhaps it is a misprint.

  27. 45

    Kristyn this marshmallow frosting is awesome, I’ll definitely make it again !!!! I used it for brownies I wanted to decorate with Peeps & jelly beans for Easter and I don’t like sweet frosting and never frost my brownies. This worked out great and is very easy to make, not saving the other recipes I found that would take a bit more time.

  28. 46

    Does this frosting need to be refrigerated? I made a double batch and have a little left over. I want to frost more cupcakes tomorrow and am wondering. I love this frosting! I’ve used it twice now with great results. I used Creme one time and Fluff one time, and both worked great. A 10-year old girl at my daughter’s party today loved the frosting so much she asked if she could have another cupcake. :)

  29. 47

    I also was wondering if it should be refrigerated. It oozed slowly down the sides of my cupcakes.
