You know what I love? -- besides marshmallow and peanut butter -- I enjoy using up leftovers. There's nothing quite as satisfying without throwing out anything as clearing room in your freezer. That is exactly what happened with these Fluffernutter Cookie Cups.
I try to send things off to work with Ryan every now and then, so that we do not have everything in the house. Hence the idea for these really came from my husband's friend Robin (Hi Robin!) , who has sampled a couple baked goods. He made some of my recipes, which is amazing and awesome. Robin, thank you, if you are reading this and I hope you enjoy these!
Now, this is truly the first time I had a fluffernutter anything. I had heard about this combo but never tried it. When I was told by Ryan Robin had proposed it, I figured it was the perfect time to try out this combination.
