When I grew up I knew I was doing something right when I opened my lunch box to find a peanut butter and fluff sandwich. I always got them as this special treat since it is a marshmallow sandwich and not the healthiest of options. Now that I have kids of my own I like to be able to do the same thing for them. Only it ends up be this big mess for my one year old but I can see it on his face how much he loves it so it is well worth it. Now one big problem I had when I moved down south is I can’t find my favorite brand of fluff anymore, so I come up with my own Homemade Marshmallow Fluff that I can make at home. This Homemade Marshmallow Fluff is the same fluff I use to make my Marshmallow Buttercream.
