Peanut-butter sandwiches are one of the most popular lunchtime staples around, and we look for any chance to jazz up our favorite spread and bread. Well, today’s National Fluffernutter Day, which gives us the perfect opportunity to turn our on-the-go standard fare into something truly decadent.
Traditionally, a fluffernutter starts with two slices of soft bread. One side is spread with peanut butter and the other is smothered in marshmallow, then the two slices are sandwiched together to make a gooey, sweet treat.
We like to make our fluffernutter sandwiches with organic smooth peanut butter or (our favorite) organic crunchy peanut butter. The rich peanut flavor, without additives like sugar or salt, really melds nicely with the sweetness of the marshmallow. However, if you prefer something a bit more dressed up, we have plenty of options for ya!
If you like a bit of fruit with your fluff, try adding a layer of strawberry jam between the peanut butter and marshmallow. Pumpkin butter and apple butter add a delightful hint of spice to the sandwich that’s perfect for fall.
Punching up your sandwich with sweets may seem a bit over the top, but it’s a delicious once-in-awhile treat! Sprinkle a layer of chocolate covered sunflower seeds, marshmallow bits or assorted chocolate chips to create a special-occasion sandwich that can’t be beat!
