Some of you might have grown up with fluffernutter sandwiches. Some, like me, may have never heard of it. Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff? Sign me up.
Since last week when I first heard of fluffernutter, I have been in love with it. It is with pure happiness that I bring to you this amazing Fluffernutter Dip.
About this Fluffernutter Dip
Flavor: The peanut butter part of this fluffernutter dip is basically a buckeyecandy. It’s soft, creamy and sweet. Add marshmallow fluff to it and it makes it a little stickier but oh so delicious. Although chocolate isn’t in traditional fluffernutter, the peanut butter ball looks pretty rolled in chocolate chips.
Texture: Creamy is the name of this dessert dip’s game. Mini chocolate chips on the outside add a little texture, but the crunch comes in when you dip cookies and crackers into the smooth, sweet dip.
How to Make Fluffernutter Dip
Make a mixture using powdered sugar, vanilla, 1 cup of peanut butter and ½ a stick of butter.
Once this mixture is mixed well, press it out into a 9 x 7 inch rectangle on a cookie sheet that has been covered with wax paper.
Then pop it in the freezer for about 10 minutes so the mixture gets firm, then spread on the marshmallow fluff.
After you spread on the fluff, let it sit until it is almost back to room temperature, which for us was about 10 minutes.
Fold the peanut butter mixture in half, trapping the marshmallow inside the peanut butter by pressing the edges of the peanut butter mixture together. Make sure it’s all pressed together as best as you can or you’ll have marshmallow fluff oozing out. Which, now that I think about it…is that really a problem?!
Here comes the fun part. Carefully mold your fluffernutter mixture into a ball.
Then roll it in mini chocolate chips to make it look as pretty as it tastes.

Thick, sweet peanut butter blends together with marshmallow fluff in this Fluffernutter Dip. Best served with pretzels, vanilla wafers, crackers or apples!
Pretzels, apple slices, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, etc.for dipping
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the peanut butter and butter until well blended. Add in the vanilla and mix again. Then add in the powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until all of the powdered sugar is mixed in.
Line a small cookie sheet with wax paper. Press the peanut butter mixture onto the wax paper, making a rectangle that is about 9″x7″. The peanut butter will be about ¼ to ½ inch thick.
Put the cookie sheet into the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
Once the peanut butter is firm, spread the marshmallow fluff on top, leaving ½ an inch of peanut butter showing on all sides of the rectangle. Allow the layers to sit for about 10 minutes to bring it closer to room temperature.
Fold the layers in half and press the edges together, to enclose the marshmallow inside the peanut butter. Then gently mold the mixture into a ball, being careful to keep the marshmallow fluff hidden inside.
Sprinkle the mini chocolate chips on the cookie sheet and roll the peanut butter ball in the chips, coating the outside.
Wrap the ball tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving.
Serve with pretzels, Oreos, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, etc.
Be sure to keep this dip wrapped tightly in plastic wrap until you are ready to serve it. It keeps the marshmallow fluff hidden neatly inside.
We served this dip on a plate. Once the ball has been cut into, the marshmallow will very slowly start to ooze out as it comes to room temperature. You could very easily serve this in a small bowl so that the marshmallow fluff doesn’t make a mess on your cupboard. Our dip didn’t last long enough to cause a problem, though.
