Peanut Butter 'n Fluff Brownies



We ate well at our house over the weekend.  When family comes to town, don't you just tend to make more and more delicious things?  We did.

Including these brownies.  So, so simple.  While cruising the grocery store on Friday (with two kids, mind you) I came across marshmallow fluff on sale.  Now, I rarely buy the stuff unless I'm baking my s'mores bars, but when they have two ginormous jars on sale for 2/$1.00, I couldn't pass it up.

I knew I needed a dessert for company and was thinking brownies.  Then I was thinking brownies with fluff mixed in.  Then I was thinking peanut butter.

Then I fell into a sugar induced brownie thinking coma.

Finally I dreamt up these Peanut Butter 'n Fluff Brownies.  Short on time?  These are for you.  All it requires is your favorite, quality brownie mix, peanut butter and a jar of fluff.



Peanut Butter 'n Fluff Brownies
1 boxed brownie mix
1 large jar marshmallow fluff
1 c. peanut butter

Cook brownies according to package directions, in an 8x8 baking pan.  When cooled, mix together fluff and peanut butter, stirring until swirled together.  Frost onto the brownies.

Keep covered and store in a cool place (fluff has a tendency to slowly melt) or in the fridge if desired.  We kept ours on the counter and only in the morning did I notice the fluff starting to ooze down the brownies.

But, guess what?  That didn't hinder the taste or stop us from eating them!

Try these soon.  You will not be disappointed.  That is unless you do not like marshmallows or fluff.  But, who would that be?

  1. Hopefully this comment will stick! Glad you had a fun girls night out over the weekend - I couldn't comment on that post for some reason.

    I am not sure I could be friends with anyone who doesn't like fluff! In fact, a babysitter I had growing up used to give us fluff and jelly sandwiches - I haven't thought of that inyears!

  3. Just put the brownies in the oven (I forgot about food day tomorrow) I think I will wait until in the am to put the marshmellow creme/pb frosting on them. I can't wait for them to cool or I won't get up in the am. I will tell the VGM Insurance folks it is your receipe. I know I am going to love them. I even bought the brownie mix with pb chips in them.

  4. Brownies are baking, mixing fluff and pb, then frosting, and then I may add kisses and brown a little under the broiler for crunch.
