So what did I do with my snow day? Well after waking up at 5:15 am (like normal) and being told by my dad that he got a call at 4:30 am saying that school was closed, I couldn’t go back to sleep. So I read for about an hour, worked on some homework/notes, had a mini marathon of Lie To Me (totally addicting show that I wish hadn’t been canceled), and surfed around Foodgawker.
Most people talk about Pinterest being a time-sucker, but to me, it’s Foodgawker. That place is so addicting and the pictures make my mouth water. One of the amazing things I found was a recipe for fluffernutter bars by Bakers Royal.
In case you don’t know what a fluffernutter is: it’s a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but in place of jelly, marshmallow fluff steps in. It is one seriously awesome sandwich!
This bar (which is a little more like fudge) is just like a fluffernutter, but with a little bit of chocolate added thanks to the Reese’s added to it.
The end result was a mix of deliciousness. The fudge squares are crunchy from the nutter butters, yet chewy from the mini marshmallows, and creamy and chocolatey from the Reese’s and melted marshmallow and peanut butter chip mixture. It really is a nuttberbutter in a compact one inch square

Makes enough to fill a 9x13 inch pan
135 g nutter butter cookies, chopped
12 Reece’s peanut butter cups, chopped
6 cups mini marshmallows, divided
4 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
10 oz peanut butter chips
- Line a 9x13 inch pan with tin foil, leaving a small over hang; set aside. Place the chopped nutter butter cookies, Reece’s cups, and 2 1/2 cups of the mini marshmallows into a VERY large bowl; set aside.
- Place remaining marshmallows into a sauce pan over low heat. Stir until the marshmallows start to melt. As the marshmallows melt, slowly add in the butter, stirring all the while. Once the marshmallows and butter have fully melted, add in the peanut butter chips in four stages, stirring to help incorporate and melt chips. Remove from heat.
- Pour the peanut butter-marshmallow mixture over the cookies, peanut butter cups, and mini marshmallows. Fold to combine (this will take a
littlelot bit of elbow grease). Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Spread it out so it’s evenly distributed throughout the pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours or until set.
- Using the foil overhang, lift the bar out of the pan. Cut the bar into squares.
