  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, butter and milk. Place over low heat, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in the top of a double boiler, melt the marshmallows with the water. When melted, stir into hot syrup mixture until no streaks remain. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.

I made this as described but did not pre melt the marshmallows. I just stired them into the hot liquid and they melted away.



I loved this recipe because I have always been trying to make marshmallow topping for ice cream and had never figured out how to do it. I love marshmallow flavor so that is why I liked it so much. I probably would not add vanilla next time as it turned the color to a beige. It is a little stringy when cold, but I found if I heated it in the microwave for a few seconds it was easier to put over the ice cream. Thanks

I have been looking for a marshmallow topping for years. I have tried many recipes but this is, by far, the best! This recipe brought back fond memories of going with my Dad to Bailey's Ice Cream Shop in Boston for a hot fudge sundae dripping with marshmallow sauce running down the sides of the bowl onto a plate. Fantastic!
