Fluffernutter Brownies Are the Treat That Sweet Childhood Dreams Are Made Of
Fluffernutter sandwiches were always sort of a special treat for me as a kid. While peanut butter and jelly felt like a classic lunch option, switching things up with peanut butter and marshmallow felt edgy and fun. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized that the fluffernutter concept was not limited to just those childhood sandwiches, but also could be the foundation for some incredible desserts — like brownies.
Sarah Crawford of Broma Bakery took to her Instagram account recently to reveal her take on classic fudgy brownies: an upgraded fluffernutter version that included ribbons of both peanut butter and fluff. The result? A rich and chocolatey brownie elevated by the added sweetness of the fluff, and salty, nutty flavor of the peanut butter. Yum.
The beauty of these fluffernutter brownies is that they are incredibly easy to make. Start by making your favorite homemade brownie recipe or boxed mix. Homemade will obviously take longer than going with a mix, but either one will work great for this recipe. Then, before placing in the oven, take a dollop of peanut butter and another of marshmallow fluff, and drop both on top of your brownie batter. Then, take a knife and blend into swirls. Don’t go overboard with the swirls because — while you do want marbling — you still want the texture and feel of a classic brownie to be present as well.
You are going to want to underbake these brownies a bit so that the results will be an ooey-gooey peanut butter-marshmallow-chocolate experience in every bite. And, really, is there anything better than that? Probably not.
