If you're looking for something to do today then I hope you didn't just eat because it's National Fluffernutter Day!  You're going to want to save some room for this sandwich!  So let's get right into celebrating National Fluffernutter Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, peanut butter is already a deliciously-loved treat and it's eaten by millions of people every single day. And the way to make a peanut butter sandwich even better, seems to be the act of adding some kind of sweetness to it. Some go with honey, some go with jelly but there are many who opt for marshmallow. It's such a creative flavor and texture combination that it just begs to be celebrated and the people have heard its cries.  But I'm sure you already realize what a fluffernutter is, right? You just take two pieces of bread, like you do with any sandwich, and then you spread peanut butter on one slice and marshmallow cream on another slice. That's it! The reason it's called a fluffernutter is because Marshmallow Fluff is the most commonly used marshmallow cream for this sandwich and of course the nutter part is because of the peanut butter.

This is a very common sandwich in my neck of the woods, the Northeastern United States, but that doesn't mean you can't chomp into it too! But the creators of Marshmallow Fluff don't want other people using that fluffernutter name, because they trademarked it and they're willing to go to court over it. The problem is, that trademark only covers printed recipes and ice cream, so you might be able to get away with a few things.  But I think you should just stick to eating fluffernutters for today!

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, if you already have the three basic supplies then start slapping these things together! If not, then you'll want to head to the grocery store and pick up what you're missing. My guess is that you need some Fluff, am I right? But feel free to step outside of the norm and try a fluffernutter with chunky peanut butter or a flavored type of Fluff and spread it on all kinds of different breads.

But let's get creative, shall we? A fluffernutter is basically three things: bread, peanut butter and marshmallow. So take a moment to brainstorm some ideas out of that and then take a look at what I came up with. Bake a basic cake, but mix those tiny marshmallows into the batter; that's your bread and marshmallow. Then spread a peanut butter frosting on top and you're good to go!  Care for another idea? Take some of the bigger marshmallows, stick a toothpick in one and dip it into some melted peanut butter chips. Get it coated all over and then roll it in some crushed cookie crumbs. Sit it on some wax paper upside down, let it cool off and then you've got some bite-sized awesomeness on a stick! What kind of ideas can you come up with?  Have a great day and enjoy that fluffernutter magic!
