He told me it was a fluffernutter sandwich.
“A what?” I responded, baffled.
Ben huffed out an annoyed breath. All of this talking was getting in the way of him eating. “It’s marshmallow fluff, peanut butter and Nutella.”
From then on, whenever he unearthed the squishy white bread filled with two days’ worth of sugar content, my own boring turkey sandwich paled in comparison.
As I have come to realize, a traditional fluffernutter sandwich doesn’t have Nutella, which is why I left it out of this recipe. These cookies are strictly composed of peanut butter, sugar, marshmallow fluff and an egg. Four ingredients, one bowl and 5 minutes to bake. How simple is that?
These Flourless Fluffernutter cookies are crispy on the outside with a chewy middle, and taste like you’re eating peanut butter straight from the jar. Swirls of marshmallow decorate the dough, giving it a pretty marbled affect. Enjoy.
