Seated in the home of a truly lovely family, we were fed…and fed…and fed. And I’ll never be the same! It was divine. And the star of the show was a Peanut Butter Fluff Spread!

How long does it keep?

Once you have made your peanut butter fluff, let it cool before transferring to a sealable mason jar. It will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, though I doubt it will last that long!

What’s the best peanut butter to use?

I like to use a creamy peanut butter for this spread rather than a crunchy one so that it’s nice and smooth. It’s best to avoid natural peanut butter as the oil can separate.

Did you grow up eating Fluffernutter sandwiches?

Even if you didn’t, it’s never too late to try something new.

I recently learned that October 8 is National Fluffernutter Day. Who knew?

I’ll take any excuse I can get to indulge in the nostalgia of this sweet combo of peanut butter and fluff.

What is a Fluffernutter?

On paper, a fluffernutter is a sandwich made with Marshmallow Fluff and peanut butter.
But it is SO much more than a sandwich, my friends.

A fluffernutter is an experience.
A creamy, sweet, peanutty experience you’ll love sinking your teeth into, no matter how old you are.

The Fluffernutter first gained popularity in the north eastern United States over a century ago.
Marshmallow creme (a spreadable form of marshmallows) came to popularity in Massachusetts just as peanut butter was becoming a staple of American diets.

It didn’t take long for busy moms to start doling out the peanut butter and fluff sandwiches.
And more than a hundred years later, we’re still eating them.

Kids love marshmallows. Kids love peanut butter.
Put them together and you have the ultimate kid-approved sandwich!

New Englanders especially embraced the Fluffernutter.
Growing up in Rhode Island, that was lunch.
As our family grew, the kids became quite fond of them as well.

It was the go-to lunch box sandwich and after school snack.
When you didn’t know what to eat a Fluffernutter was the answer.

Over time, I perfected the art of the perfect Fluffernutter.

Spread creamy peanut butter on one piece of the fluffiest white sandwich bread you can find.
Spread an equal amount of marshmallow fluff on another slice.
Smoosh them together and voila!

While it might not be the healthiest peanut butter sandwich out there, I consider Fluffernutters a comfort food well worth the occasional indulgence.

Some variations of Fluffernutters include bananas, jam or chocolate spreads.

I prefer it in its purest form: sweet, simple and delicious.

Fluffernutter ingredients

What kind of Marshmallow Fluff is best?

To make the best Fluffernutter, it’s essential to use true Marshmallow Fluff.
You can’t miss the iconic blue label and red lid, usually found in the peanut butter aisle of your grocery store.

There are other brands of marshmallow creme available but none can compare to the original.
PLEASE trust me on this and get the good stuff!

When it comes to the peanut butter, I stick with the classic shelf-stable variety like Jiff or Skippy.
Natural peanut butter is wonderful in many dishes but when it comes to Fluffernutters, I prefer the kind of peanut butter I craved as a kid.

With that in mind, feel free to use natural style peanut butter if you simply must.
You can even use wheat bread if that’s a deal breaker.
(Although in some New England states, that might actually be considered a crime, but I won’t tell.)

Seriously though, it’s the Marshmallow Fluff that’s non-negotiable!
