A version of a New England classic, this Fluffernutter Panini has melted marshmallow creme, peanut butter and candied peanuts all toasted on cinnamon sugar crusted bread.



Candied Peanuts:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of coarse salt


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 8 slices of white bread, each about 1 inch thick
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Marshmallow Fluff or Marshmallow Creme


  1. To make the candied peanuts: Lay out a piece of aluminum foil on a large baking sheet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine the peanuts, sugar, water, vanilla and salt in a skillet and place over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, as the mixture goes from syrupy to dry and sandy to a deep brown, caramel color. This will take from 10-12 minutes.
  3. Pour the peanuts out onto the prepared pan. Let the peanuts cool completely then break apart as needed.
  4. To make the sandwiches: Combine the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir until they are well combined.
  5. Heat a panini press to medium high.
  6. For each sandwich, spread a layer of the cinnamon butter mixture on two of the slices of bread. Flip the slices of bread over. Spread 1/4 of the peanut butter on one slice, and 1/4 of the marshmallow fluff on the other slice. Sprinkle 1/4 of the peanuts over the peanut butter, then close the sandwich with the other slice of bread, marshmallow side down.
  7. Prepare the remaining 3 sandwiches.
  8. Grill 2 panini at a time, with the lid closed, until the marshmallow fluff is melted and the bread is toasted, 2-3 minutes.
