Enjoy some of our favorite fluffernutter-style treats, below.

Headed to a picnic or barbecue? Bring this crowd-pleasing pie with you!

A dollop of marshmallow creme and a melted peanut butter drizzle add a winning finishing touch — and guarantee there won’t be any leftovers.

You don’t need a campfire to make great s’mores. Gooey toasted marshmallows rest atop a layer of peanut-filled cookies, which are the perfect party treat. Pro tip? To avoid having the marshmallows stick to the knife when you cut and serve the magic bars, dip the knife in hot water between each slice.

The brownie crust of this pie is delicious on its own, but the real magic is in the peanut butter-marshmallow filling. Combine peanut butter with marshmallow creme, cream cheese and heavy cream, then add a dollop of whipped cream for serving.

Trust us — you’ve never had s’mores this decadent before. Ree slathers graham crackers with peanut butter and hazelnut spread, then uses each cracker to sandwich a toasted marshmallow. Then, she dips each s’more in melted chocolate and adds crushed pretzels, nuts, sprinkles or chocolate chips. When it comes to toppings, the sky is the limit — feel free to use peanut butter chips for an extra nutty treat!
