Fluffnutter Bars

The other day I had to buy marshmallow fluff for my niece. I remember when fluff was a staple in my cabinet but my daughter hasn't been asking for it for awhile. Its funny how you don't realize how your children's (or your own) taste evolve over time. I think all my son has been eating for lunch lately is tuna fish. (Why tuna fish? Why everyday?) I don't think my children will evolve away from desserts. Well, my daughter loved this dessert. Of course, my husband loved this dessert even more. It is gooey and soft.
Fluffernutter Bars
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
 1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a 8x8 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the cooled butter with the peanut butter until well combined. 
Add the brown sugar and sugar with the peanut butter mixture.
add the egg and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Add the flour until just combined. 
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan.
Gently fold in the marshmallow fluff into the other half of the batter.
Pour the rest of the batter on top of the other batter. 
Bake the dessert for 15 minutes or until the center is set but still soft.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
