Smores pancakes and Homemade marshmallow fluff

I have been craving a lot of junk food lately.  Mostly smores and pizza.  Not sure if it is because of 'winter' and my body wants to add extra insulation, or what.  Needless to say we had smores pancakes again today.  I already posted a great recipe, but I didn't have all the ingredients, so I improvised.
Using my waffles in a jar, I made waffles.  While the waffle iron was heating I made homemade marshmallow fluff.  It was so yummy!  After the waffles were done, we just slathered on fluff, and Hersheys chocolate syrup.  

As if this wasn't sugary enough..... my youngest decided to use sugar babies to make a happy face.

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Stir together the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt in a small saucepan over high heat. Stir until the ingredients are combined.  Bring to a boil and leave untouched until the mixture reaches 240°F on a candy thermometer.
Meanwhile, put the egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. Start whipping the egg whites to soft peaks. (You want to have the egg whites whipped and ready when the syrup is ready to be drizzled in. If they’re whipping faster than your syrup is coming to temperature, just stop the mixer until the syrup is ready.)
When the syrup reaches 240°, slowly drizzle about 2 tablespoons of syrup into the egg whites to warm them. Let it combine for several seconds.  (If you add too much syrup at once, the whites will scramble.)Slowly drizzle in the rest of the syrup. Increase the speed to medium high and whip until the marshmallow is stiff and glossy, about 7 minutes. Add in the vanilla and whip for 2 more minutes. Use immediately or refrigerate stored in an airtight container.
Do not use your biggest bowl.  I should have used the smaller one.  This very large bowl was definitely too large.
