BLESS THIS MESS
Use a stand mixer. It will change your life. You can make this using a hand mixer, but it just takes time. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites and salt on high speed until foamy.
With the mixer still running, slowly add the sugar. Beat mixture until soft peaks form.
Bring the corn syrup to a boil over medium heat in a small saucepan. When the corn syrup comes to a boil, remove from heat.
Slowly pour the hot corn syrup into the egg mixture while your mixer is mixing on high.
Beat the mixture until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla, and mix to combine. Use right away.
