Fluffernutters...or Fat Elvis....Outside the Comfort Zone
As the pumpkin pie fudge was attempting to be made, I remembered the fat Elvis sandwich that Eleanor loved. A restaurant that has since closed made it...marshmallow fluff, peanut butter, banana slices. Theirs was toasted and served with chocolate dipping sauce. I was also remembering a co-worker in a past life telling me that whenever she was away for the evening her husband and her daughter made fluffernutters. That term was new to me at the time....and I couldn't imagine I would ever make one. But, I had a few dollops of marshmallow cream (although I think it is spelled "creme"), so I thought it would be a fun change for the girls to have in their lunches. I didn't have chocolate dipping sauce (aka Hershey's syrup), so I sprinkled a few chocolate ships in the sandwich. This sandwich got rave reviews! I even had enough fluff to make it one more day in the same week.
Now, I'm out of fluff. I'm debating how I can get some in the future. A disguise when grocery shopping? A trip to a far away suburb?
