Happy Fluffernutter Day! Here are 9 Glorious Recipes to Celebrate Because Marshmallow Fluff Is Always a Good Idea

There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who still eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches — and those who have seen the way of the fluffernutter. Don’t laugh. Fluffernutters are half peanut butter, half marshmallow, and entirely serious business — especially today, on the most hallowed of occasions: Fluffernutter Day.

If you are one of the sad souls who did not grow up with the king of all sandwiches, allow us to show you the light. Think of the fluffernutter as your childhood PB&J, except it calls for anything and everything your mother never let you put on it: Marshmallow fluff is a must, of course, but you can also add Nutella, bacon, and potato chips — whatever strikes your fancy. Then, once you’ve mastered the sandwich every which way, you dream big. Turn it into cookies and brownies, cupcakes and smoothies, because the fluffernutter is up for it all. Grab your peanut butter and that secret jar of fluff in the back of your pantry. This is going to be the best day ever.
