Marshmallow Whipped Cream - an easy recipe with just 3 ingredients! It's the perfect fruit dip or topping for pancakes or cake!

For me, sightseeing is not complete without trying all the food that a place has to offer. My list of must-eateries in Maui was long…and we worked our way through most of them.

One of my favorite places to eat was The Gazebo in the Napili Beach area. I’d heard wonderful things about their pancakes and fried rice, so that’s what I ordered, and I demolished them. You would have too, see how good they looked?

When you look at that photo, you’ll notice a huge gob of what looks like butter on top of the pancakes. You guys, it wasn’t butter. It’s The Gazebo’s “secret” pancake topping.

What is marshmallow whipped cream?

I tasted a bite and guess what it tasted like? Marshmallow Whipped Cream! OMG you guys, I just wanted a whole bowl of that for breakfast. The pancakes were awesome too (copycat coming next week) but the fluffy cream on top? OMG.

Obviously it was the first thing I made when I got home. And I’m serving it in a bowl, like it was supposed to be served.

What’s in this fluffy marshmallow dip?

This is a super simple recipe with only 3 ingredients:

  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • Vanilla extract

You can find marshmallow fluff in the baking aisle and/or near where they sell the regular marshmallows.

You simply beat the cream halfway to whipped cream (soft peaks) then add the fluff and whip until it’s a bit stiffer. The end result is a soft and fluffy marshmallow whipped cream!

This whipped cream is not as stiff as normal whipped cream, but it’s the perfect topping for pie, cake, ice cream, or pancakes. But I like to use it how I think it was originally intended: as a fruit dip. For a spoon.

Or fruit, if you want to make it all healthy and stuff. But where’s the fun in that?

  • Beat cold heavy whipping cream on high speed using a stand mixer or hand mixer. Beat until soft peaks form (the whipped cream has thickened slightly but does not stand up on its own). Add the marshmallow cream/fluff and vanilla and continue whipping on high speed, scraping down the sides of the mixer as needed, until a loose whipped cream forms. The end result will be stiffer than soft peaks but not all the way to a hard peak.
  • Use as a dip for fruit or crackers or as a topping for pancakes, pie, brownies, ice cream, or cake.

  1. For those who complain about thinness, you’re likely using cheap whipping cream. You need 40% fat heavy cream from Costco or a restaurant supply store takes about 30-60 sec from liquid to stiff peaks. A lot are thin(36%) and takes a lot longer to whip. That said, this is way too sweet and I didn’t get that classic marshmallow flavor. I’m going back to powdered sugar heavy cream and clear vanilla. (Watkins Clear vanilla is the artificial flavor that tastes exactly like Jet Puff. Real vanilla is good but isn’t marshmallow).

  2. Is there a chance I could melt marshmallows instead of using cream/fluff? I live in a country where I can’t get ahold of cream or fluff but I do have marshmallows I could melt!

  3. Mine came out like runny slop. Don’t waste your money on these ingredients. Followed the recipe to the letter but dumped it down the drain.

    1. I’m sorry that happened – can you let me know what brand of heavy cream you used? Chances are it wasn’t whipped enough.

  4. Just made this and it was delicious! I used it to pipe stars in my flag fruit pizza. It ran a little but it still looked good and tasted amazing!
