Fluffernutter Cookies


Fluffernutter Cookies from

We’re less than a week away (make that 5 days away) from our wedding! It’s so surreal to think about & I don’t really think it’s going to hit me ’til the day of. I’ve just been doing wedding stuff for a year and it just seems like it’s just another day of doing wedding stuff…until the actual day, of course. Also, you know how when something big in your life is about to happen, you end up having horrible dreams about them and wake up in fear? Yeah, that was me this entire weekend. I know none of what happened in the dreams will happen, but it’s just still scary when you’re in the dream because you wake up and you’re like “that was so real.” Thankfully none of them were real :)

It’s really funny to watch how your get together with friends start evolving drastically after college. Prior to college and in college, every time anyone would want to hang out, it’d involve a lot of drinking and then going out on the town. Then after college, you probably would do that for a couple years until you settle down and are in a serious, committed relationship with someone, and then you start looking at Facebook and starting to see engagements pop up every day all over your newsfeed. This past weekend, Jason and I went to a friend’s birthday party and everyone we saw pretty much was holding a baby or pregnant. I mean, I’ve been seeing this for a while since there seems to be a pregnancy announcement from my blogger friends every other month (yay! it’s really exciting from an outside perspective) but when it’s with your friends that you just saw last year sans baby, it’s definitely a slap of, “you’re getting to that age.” It’s funny, last year at the same friends’ birthday party, everyone was throwing back wine, beer, staying up late, and this year, everyone was either bottle feeding, bouncing their baby on their leg, talking about poop, or diaper changing. It’s really crazy how life goes by in a blink of an eye.

So, since we’re talking about life, how about a throwback? Who remembers eating peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches as a kid? Wasn’t that like the best thing in the world? Whenever you opened your lunchbox and saw that your mom had made you fluffernutter sandwiches, I bet you didn’t want to trade that sandwich with the kid sitting next to you ;) and let’s be real – I’m sure we all eat that still today, right?

These cookies were inspired from these childhood sandwiches, but also, when I saw this post from Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere. She had a picture of a peanut butter and marshmallow cookie she was eating and right then and there, I knew I had to make one. It looked too good not to!

Servings: 3
Calories: 293 kcal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup small marshmallows, not the jumbo campfire size
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Then add in the eggs and vanilla extract and beat for 2 more minutes.
  4. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until all combined and well-incorporated.
  5. Using a spatula, fold in the marshmallows. They won't fold in completely into all the dough, but that's ok.
  6. Take a scoop of cookie dough, roll it into a ball, push the marshmallows back into the dough if they pop out, then place on cookie sheet & repeat until all dough has been used up.
  7. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Until marshmallow has melted and the edges of the cookie are getting slightly brown.
  8. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Store in an airtight container.

    Remember to breathe, Julie. The way to capture such a special fleeting moment as a wedding, is to remind yourself (or choose a special person to be in charge of reminding you) to breathe, look around at your loved ones, and be as present as possible in the moment. Having these delicious looking cookies for a snack and a smile is also recommended.:)

  2. It’s a little bit closer to your wedding now, you must be so excited! I remember I could not slep before mine. You will have a great time, I am sure. And meanwhile it’s nice to concentrate on something nice like this amazing cookies, whan an idea :)

    I totally missed out on fluffernutter sandwiches as a kid but I am currently obsessed with pb and marshmallow. They go together even better than pbj!

    Yay for it almost being wedding day! And yay for people who get married on the last Saturday in April – that’s what my husband + I did, too – almost 2 years ago. =) These look SO amazing – wish you lived closer so I could’ve taste-tested ’em for you. =)

  5. Totally agree Julie!! Sometimes it freaks me out how much has changed in the years. It’s weird to see so many friends pregnant and with babies and I know it’s just a matter of time before that’s my life too haha

    Congrats on the wedding being merely days away! SO exciting!!

    I was glue to the first shot! My son loves marshmallow and his birthday is coming up. I know what exactly need to make for him, and I will keep this secret. He will be thrilled! Have a wonderful wedding! I hope you post some pictures of your wedding on IG! :)

    These look amazing…making them for a family get together tomorrow! What are your thoughts on adding chocolate chips in?

    • 05/16/2013 at 10:14 am

      I wouldn’t suggest it. Too many flavor profiles.

    Hi. I was wondering if you can help me. My marshmallows keep melting in the oven. My dough doesn’t melt into a cookie if I roll it into a ball. I do use golden cane sugar instead of granulated white sugar.

      They are supposed to melt in the oven. I’m not sure why your dough won’t melt into a cookie shape…where are you located? Are you perhaps using too much dough for your cookie ball? You could also try pushing the ball down with the bottom of a mug prior to baking to help it.

    I had a similar dessert at a restaurant recently and found myself craving it and wondering if I could recreate fluffernutter cookies today.
