It’s Coming [fluffernutter bars]

It’s coming.  You can feel it in the air.  You can see it on Instagram and Facebook.  People are showing us their carts full of pencils and notebooks, or lamenting about the daily annoyance that is packing a small child’s lunch.  Planners are filling up with dates (I have almost no free weekends this fall, despite not having a single wedding.  What is my life?), and life seems to be speeding back into overdrive.  It’s back to school time, and it’s struck again.  We should probably wash it down with fluffernutter bars and a big glass of milk.

fluffernutter bars.

To make a 9 x 13 pan, you will need:

For the bars:

  • 1 c. salted peanuts, chopped
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. quick oats
  • 2/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c. butter, softened
  • 1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 c. peanut butter chips, coarsely chopped

For the topping:

  • 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 – 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter chips
  • 1 1/2 c. salted peanuts, chopped

In a mixing bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. Mix until well-blended. Stir in peanut butter chips. Press into a greased 9×13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Dollop peanut butter over hot crust and carefully spread it evenly. Dollop marshmallow creme over top the peanut butter layer, and carefully spread evenly. Sprinkle with peanut butter chips and peanuts. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned at the edges. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
