I have a delightful treat of a recipe for you today! Yum, yum, YUM....Fluffernutter Blondies. I found this recipe on the blog, The Spiffy Cookie that was assigned to me this month through the Secret Recipe Club. Definitely a recipe to make for those that you love, that you adore, that you know REAL well and even those that you may just know by name. You will make ALL of them happy with these blondies (except those that are allergic to peanut butter as there is indeed PB in them as predicted by the name of these treats). When you bite into one of these bars you will take a double take to the treat in your hand as you will think you just took a bite of a fluffernutter sandwich. The taste of peanut butter and fluff melts in your mouth as you enjoy

(recipe from The Spiffy Cookie)
8 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened + 2 Tbsp for melting
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup flour
1/4 + 1/3 cup peanut butter, divided
1/2 cup marshmallow creme (otherwise known as, fluff)
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 pan (I used a 9x9 pan with success) - set pan aside.
2. Cream together 8 Tbsp butter, white and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla extract - mix to combine. Add in salt and flour - again mix until incorporated. Next add in 1/4 cup peanut butter.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4. In a small sauce pan add in the remaining 2 Tbsp of butter, 1/3 cup peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly as it melts until it is smooth. Drizzle this lovely mixture over the batter in the prepared pan.
5. With a knife swirl the peanut butter/fluff melted mixture into the blondie batter. Lastly, sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the top.
Pop pan into oven and bake for 20-25 minutes (23 minutes was just right for my blondies). Cool completely before cutting into bars.
Happy Fluffernutter Blondies Baking!
