Special snack: Fluffernutter candy

Do you call those marshmallow fluff and peanut butter sandwiches fluffernutters??
Or is that a regional thing?
Anyway, I bought some marshmallow fluff the other day for no particular reason but that every time I have a recipe that calls for it, I don't have any.  Course I ended up using pretty quickly.  I was brainstorming a special snack for the kids as I was about to leave for a ladies retreat that weekend.  I thought of making peanut butter ritz cracker sandwiches dipped in chocolate.  Then I thought how marshmallow fluff would make them that much more awesome.
So I spread some peanut butter on some crackers and marshmallow fluff on the other.  
Then sandwiched them together.
Then I melted down some chocolate bark and spread it on top.  I wasn't sure how the cracker sandwiches would dip.  Thinking next time I might thin out the bark with some shortening and then try dipping them.  But to be honest I wasn't going for the cutest snack award, but for quick and easy and delicious.

And delicious they were.  Made many friends at the retreat handing these puppies out.  ;)


Today's special snack I made these.  One of my favorite cookie bars. 
 My house smells so yummy right now I'm not sure I can wait for the kids to get home.  :)

The fluffernutter candy looks delicious!

Anytime I see that fluff, it reminds me of CT. I never see it here in CA. And I've never once ever seen anyone make anything with it, sandwiches, desserts, etc. Your post was a pleasant surprise down memory lane.
