I've been thinking about these cookies ever since I made my pb&j sandwich cookies. Those cookies are awesome, but the dough needs to be chilled for several hours before they're baked.
I've made no secret of my love for all things peanut butter and marshmallow, so I think these Fluffernutter Sandwich Cookies are pretty awesome (if I do say so myself!).
They have a toasty marshmallow and melty chocolate center all sandwiched in between classic, soft and crumbly peanut butter cookies. Really, how can you not love that?!
