Ooey Gooey Bars: Fluffernutter & a Lil Retro

In case you hadn't guessed from this post, I love me some fluffernutter. In all forms. I mean, let's all get serious for a second. Unless you have a peanut allergy(and poor Blakey, this always makes me think how hard that is for my friend trying to make sure he's safe) how can you not love this. like I believe people should throw down in line to get to anything that combines marshmallows and peanut butter. 


Anyways, we had the party this past weekend and I had been wanting to make some ooey gooey bars for everyone and I was skimming over ideas and remembered I had seen a peanut butter one once before and then decided to make it my favorite way. You're welcome. In advance.



Here's all you will need to make this treat a reality, super simple and fast!


Ingredients:
Cake:
1 box chocolate cake mix
8 tbsp butter, melted
1 egg


Center:

1 pkge of minature marshmallows
1 pkge of mini reeses cups


Filling:

1 8 oz pkge of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
8 tbsp butter, melted
16 oz powdered sugar
3 tbsp peanut butter
3 tbsp marshmallow fluff

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer.  Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
 Sprinkle on the marshmallows and reese's, there's no rhyme or reason. Do it as you want. As much or as little of either.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Add the eggs and butter and beat together.  melt the pb & fluff in the microwave for 10 seconds and add to filling, beat until incorporated.
Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well.  Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.  Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
Go getcha some!
