It was about time I tried to come up with my own candy bar and I think my first shot turned out great and they are really simple. I combined everything I loved as a child (strawberry wafers, marshmallows, and chocolate) and I ended up with a really tasty candy bar.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
Marshmallow Fluff:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 cups of light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
(This makes a lot of marshmallow fluff (about two quarts). For the amount of candy bars I made, I could have cut this in half.)

Other:
  • A package of strawberry wafers
  • Semi-sweet chocolate (amount depends on how many you are making)

Step 2: Making the Marshmallow Fluff


In a large bowl, combine the egg whites, corn syrup, and salt; beat with a mixer at high speed until thick (around 10 minutes).

Add the powdered sugar and blend in slowly. I suggest doing this one cup at a time because the fluff will be sticky and it will prevent an awful mess to clean. Add the vanilla extract and blend.

(Any leftover fluff can be frozen or can sit in the fridge for up to a week. Just make sure to stir it before using. I seriously have a ton left over and I used some to make a chocolate marshmallow milkshake--I highly recommend this.)

I know this probably sounds dumb but I was wondering if the strawberry wafers was key and If u used a different flavor wafer will the flavor drastically change? can we use vanilla or chocolate wafers?

I hope you aren't terribly offended that I am so late in responding to this. You can use what ever flavor you want for this! It will change how is taste in the end, but I bet they are all pretty good. I just chose strawberry because those were my favorite as a kid.

You easily can. It would make the treats a super fast snack.
