Does anyone remember fluffernutter sandwiches?
They were the most sugary, most unhealthy, most delicious food you could eat as a child. The perfect mix of sweet and creamy, with the perk of eating dessert for lunch (more or less). As an adult, you lose the ability to eat these sandwiches without guilt, without feeling like a poor college student who is eating whatever they find in their pantry. Without the thought that you should really get more veggies in your diet.
Who says adults can’t eat these sandwiches when they want to? C’mon, you’re an adult. You make your own choices. Once in a while, these little treats are just what adults need!
But if you are going to do a fluffernutter, do it right. Go the full-fledged dessert option. Don’t just eat peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on a piece of white bread, eat it as an actual cookie. We all know white bread is nothing more than sugar, anyway. Why not own that and go for the sugar option, in the first place.
Okay, there’s still totally no judgment if you eat your fluffernutters as a sandwich. Everyone needs to eat fluffernutter sandwiches. In fact, even the best of parents should impart to their children the joy of a good fluffernutter sandwich.
But in case you wanted to go full fluffernutter cookie mode, we have provided you with a delicious, simple recipe to feel the full nostalgia of your childhood. (You’ll have to find your own Cabbage Patch Dolls and jump ropes though, sorry) And, we hope, to pass to your children.
[info_box type=”warning_box”]We suggest that you take an afternoon to make up some of these cookies, and sit on the front porch with your kids eating them. Talk about your memories as a child, giggle and laugh, and connect.[/info_box]
Tip: You have the easiest option of using store-bought marshmallow fluff, but you can also use our homemade marshmallow fluff recipe. Both are equally sticky and delicious.
Tip two: When handling marshmallow fluff, use water or oil on whatever you are using to scoop the fluff, whether that be your hands or a spatula. If making these with kids it can be fun to butter up their hands (they will giggle and squeal!) before starting.
Your kids will love these cookies because they are sweet, rich, and delicious. But please, be careful if you let them help with the fluff. Nobody wants small children with marshmallows in their hair…that is a disaster waiting to happen. Marshmallows definitely are not the easiest food to get out of hair, up alongside gum, petroleum jelly, and glitter. Marshmallow fluff, no matter the brand or method of creation, is messy.
But oh, so delicious.
