Fluffernutter Brownies

Being away for the weekend, has left me feeling rushed with the hours just zipping by.  So much to do and so little time.  While I am trying to get caught up and write my race recap from the weekend I am going to leave you with this sensational idea to jazz up your brownies.

Oh yes, these are as delicious as they sound!

Fluffernutter is a famous sandwich and now it has come to brownies!  My husband complained last week that he was forced to settle for a glass of chocolate milk for dessert two nights in a row and  needed a REAL dessert.  Brownies are a favorite and would be quick to make, but I wanted something more than just a regular brownie.  

Before putting the brownies in the oven I decided to add peanut butter right into the unbaked mixture.  But I got an even better idea and decided to add marshmallow fluff in too.  Using a large spoon I dropped alternating scoops of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff across the pan. I only did a section of the brownies because I did not tell dessert man I was doing this and wasn't sure he would be interested.

I then took a knife and swirled the scoops into the brownie mixture until it was nicely marbled.
I cooked the brownies according to the package directions and...VOILA!  A masterpiece emerged.
Okay, maybe not a masterpiece, but a darn good brownie that I could not get enough of.  This section of the pan was a hit with dessert man too who is not a big marshmallow fan.  There is something about it with peanut butter that makes it irresistible.

I wish I had made the entire pan into fluffernutter brownies!

Make your brownies according to package or recipe directions and spread into prepared pan.  Using a large spoon, alternate dropping heaping scoops of peanut butter and marshmallow on top of mixture.  Use your judgement on how much based on your preference.  I wish I had used more peanut butter on mine. (Admittedly I have a peanut butter problem).
Using a knife, make circle eight motions through the toppings to swirl throughout the brownie base.
Use package or recipe directions for baking temperatures and times.

Keeps well, if hidden.
