Fluffer Nutter Bars

Fluffer Nutter Bars (Adapted from Sweet Maria's Cookie Jar)


8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Marshmallow topping

2 cups marshmallow fluff
1 cup unsalted peanuts
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Mix in peanut butter until combined. Add in the egg and mix until well blended.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and beat just until combined. Scoop mixture into a 9x13" baking dish and form a crust by pressing it on the bottom and slightly up the sides.

Spread fluff over the base crust. Scatter peanuts over the marshmallow fluff and then add chocolate chips on top.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until top is lightly browned.

Remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into bars - I made 28 squares.

  1. how indulgent! funnily, when I started writing my blog I had a childhood memory of fluffer nutter sandwiches and got some of that fluff - surprise, my kids loved it, but just seeing how hard it was to get it off the knife made me question this ingredient.

  2. Hi Joe, did you use a prepared marshmallow fluff? I've only seen the marshmallow creme at the stores. Are they one and the same?

    My mother-in-law introduced my girls and I to one of our favorite marshmallow snack; ritz crackers, peanut butter with marshmallow on top. Bake in the oven until marshmallow has expanded and browned.

    Your recipe will be a welcomed variation to this snack.

  3. Catherine - The ingredient list isn't too bad, but I agree.

    Jmom - I did, it's just called "fluff"! They are similar, but there is a texture difference I think.
