Simple Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

If you’re looking for a light, fluffy frosting, one that’s a little different from a traditional buttercream, you’re going to love this delicious marshmallow fluff frosting! Best of all, it comes together in minutes! 

Welcome to another Short and Sweet recipe, y’all! This one is new frosting recipe. In fact, I just tried it tonight for the first time. I usually use my Dreamy Buttercream or a Traditional Cream Cheese Frosting. Sometimes I make a Decorator’s Buttercream. But this time? Well, I wanted something different.

I happened to have a container of marshmallow fluff on hand and decided to use it for this very purpose. This frosting is creamy and delicious—sweet, but not overly sweet. It’s truly a fun new recipe that I plan to use again and again! (The grandkids are going to love it!) 

Marshmallow Fluff Frosting Ingredients

These are simple ingredients! 

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) room temperature butter (salted or unsalted, your choice)
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (7-ounce) container marshmallow fluff (marshmallow creme)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

That’s it! Just a few ingredients to make one of the most delicious frostings you’ll ever taste!

How to Make Marshmallow Fluff Frosting
