Fluffernutter Fudge Squares

On Friday something happened that never happens: my school got a snow day. My school district is one of the meanest stubborn school districts in Colorado, I think. I think it was just this past December, but there was another huge snowstorm and pretty much all of Colorado schools shut down, except for just a few. My school district was one of them. I mean come on! Half the schools are in Boulder (where it got the most snow) and we still didn’t get a snow day. Something is seriously wrong there. But this time we did get a snow day (probably due to the fact that there would be a mutiny if we didn’t).

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.

I will admit that I had some difficulty with the recipe. I had adapted the recipe (doubling most of the ingredients and slightly raising the amount of others) so that I would get enough to make a 9x13 amount instead of the 8x8 in the original. However, there seemed t be too much extras and not enough of the binder, which kinda frustrated me, but it all turned out find once I got the hang of folding all the ingredients together.

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

Fluffernutter Fudge Squares
Adapted from Bakers Royal
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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour the peanut butter-marshmallow mixture over the cookies, peanut butter cups, and mini marshmallows. Fold to combine (this will take a little lot 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.
  4. Using the foil overhang, lift the bar out of the pan. Cut the bar into squares.  


  1. You wake up at 5.15 every morning? Ajajaj! It is no wonder you're turning to Foodgawker then! I love anything fluffernutter, so I'm pretty sure I'd eat a whole batch of these!

  2. Danielle- Yeah, I brought them to a Super Bowl party at my friends and I'm pretty sure I ate like a fifth of the pan.

  3. I love bars with marshmallows! I bet these were great!

  4. I am SO the same way with foodgawker!! These look delicious! Thanks so much for commenting on my post over at sugarcrafter :) Nice to meet you!
