Did you know that there are people in the world who have never heard of a fluffernutter? It’s true.
How is it possible that anyone had a childhood void of the magical combination of soft white sandwich bread slathered with creamy peanut butter and marshmallow fluff? It’s a crime, I can tell you that much. I wouldn’t be the adult I am today without all of the fluffernutters I consumed as a child.
For those of you fluffernutter newbies, I have a few words of wisdom on the subject that I feel compelled to impart. Firstly — fluffernutters MUST be enjoyed on white Wonder bread. There’s just no way around this. Don’t even think of using wheat bread — it simply won’t work. And don’t even get me STARTED on that Ezekiel bread nonsense or any of that stuff packed with sunflower seeds and ancient grains. This is verging into blasphemous territory and is completely unacceptable.
Secondly — the peanut butter. It has to be creamy peanut butter and most certainly can not be organic. If the peanut butter you are using needs to be stirred before you use it, kindly step away. As someone who truly cares about you, I cannot let you engage in such harmful behavior.
And last, but certainly not least — the ratio. You should be using twice as much marshmallow fluff as peanut butter. This is very important, as fluffernutters hinge on the fact that they are dessert disguised as an acceptable lunch. Please do not insult yourself or your loved ones by spreading a meager paper-thin layer of marshmallow fluff. You will most likely lose friends over this and end up sad and alone. You don’t deserve that.
If you really want to up the ante, give these fluffernutter brownies a whirl. Fudgy brownies topped with gooey, melty marshmallow fluff and a generous pour of peanut butter ganache. They are sheer perfection!
