How to make Fluffernutter Cookie Bars

  • Preheat oven to 350*F. I recommend that once your oven alerts you the preheat phase is complete – allow an additional 15 or so minutes to let your oven come to a consistent temperature for a more even bake.
  • Prepare a baking dish – I suggest a 9×13 baking dish, however, you can use a 9×9 or 11×7. – depending what you have on hand. Prepare dish by lining it with parchment paper, this will allow easy removal once the bars have set.
  • In a large bowl – add all dry ingredients and whisk until well combined.
  • Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment- add peanut butter and unsalted butter and mix until combined. Next, add sugars and mix. Then, add eggs – one at a time and mix. Add vanilla and combine. Add flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time and mix well between each addition.
  • Once all of the flour mixture has been added – Mix in the caramel pieces and chocolate chips.
  • Press half the dough on the bottom of the prepared baking dish and bake for 5 minutes and take out of oven.
  • Next, spread Marshmallow Fluff on top of the dough – I find it best to use the back of a warm metal spoon (run it under hot water to help warm it up). It won’t look perfect and that is A-OK.
  • Gently press the remaining dough flat and lay it on top of the marshmallow fluff. You will see spaces – this is expected. Try to get the dough as even as possible.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the top is a lovely golden brown
  • Once out of the oven allow the Fluffernutter Cookie Bars to cool for at least an hour so they will fully set.

Can I swap or add any fillings?

Of course! Full disclosure: I have not tested these Fluffernutter Cookie Bars with anything other than the caramel pieces and dark chocolate chips listed below. However, there are multiple options that would be delicious in this recipe. Here are some of my favorite recommendations:

  • Shredded Coconut
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Dried Cherries
  • Toffee Bits
  • Chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Oats

I’m telling you, these Fluffernutter Cookie Bars will be the hit of your household or any party you take them too! Our family loves them and asks us to bring them to family gatherings! They’ll totally be worth it!
