Gooey White Chocolate Fluffernutter Cake Bars

Ahhh, summer is officially here which means more fun time to cook with the kids. My Gooey cake bars are so simple (not to mention ridiculously delish) and the kids absolutely love to get their hands dirty to help with this one.

My favorite part about these bars is the gooey fluffernutter topping, its almost caramel like consistency which makes for a perfect gooey treat. They travel well so they’re perfect for bake sales, family picnics and parties.

Whatcha waiting for, get baking! PS, if you can even believe it my kids are still in school! …no pics of them helping me until after this week, lol!

Line up: Yellow cake mix, egg, butter, marshmallow creme, peanut butter, sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips.

 

Add your cake mix to a large bowl.

 

Add a pretty little egg.

 

…and a softened stick of butter.

 

Mix, mix and mix. You can do this with your stand mixer or use your hands to get a dough like this.

 

Press into a 9×13 inch baking pan. I like lining with foil so after it cools, I can pull the whole sheet out and cut into perfect little squares. Do you like my Sally Hansen sticker nails?! Lol. I like them but do not like that they only last about 4 days 🙂  Cute though!

 

Press evenly throughout.

 

Time for the gooey fluffernutter topping. Place your peanut butter, marshmallow creme and sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl, mixing to combine. This is what turns caramel-like once baked. Mmmmm!

Pour it over your pressed crust. Definitely lick the spoon, it’s worth it 🙂

 

Pour  a nice bag of white chocolate chips over top and bake 350 degrees F. for 23-25 minutes. Let cool completely and….

What you’ll find are these gooey bars of deliciousness! Perfect for any occasion, Enjoy friends!

1 large egg

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup marshmallow creme

14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9×13 inch baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray.

1. Place cake mix, egg, and butter into a large bowl. Mix until well combined, will be the consistency of thick cookie dough. I used my hands towards the ends. Press dough into prepared baking pan.

2. Place peanut butter, marshmallow creme and condensed milk into a large bowl and mix until well combined. Pour over crust then top with white chips. Bake for 23-25 minutes, until cooked through. Center will seem somewhat jiggly, but will set up while cools.

  1. Jenny..AMAZING!!! I love your desserts. Your creations are always brilliant!! You take common ingredients/items but prepare them in SUCH an ultra delicious way…seriously, the way your brain works is a beautiful thing 🙂

    And marshmallows, PB, powdered sugar, white choc chips….are some of my FAVE things to bake with.

    Love the pics and this recipe!!!

  2. Melanie

    I’ve heard so much about this mystical thing called “fluffernutter.” I can’t wait to try this!! Sounds like a great combination!

  3. EHochstein

    This is exactly what I need for our daughter’s preschool graduation picnic. My daughter is allergic to chocolate. I was looking for a recipe using white chocolate which she loves. Thanks….it looks delicious!

  4. EHochstein

    The peanut butter looks gooey already? Is it the brand/type or did you heat it up somewhat to get to that consistency? Thank you! I’m going to give these a trial run today 🙂

  5. When I was younger, I would ONLY eat fluffernutter sandwiches for lunch… I love packing them to bring to work from time to time. These are adorable and will definitely be making their way into my baked-good-repitoire

  6. Yum! Here is my “When I was younger” story 🙂

    My Dad is a huge fluffernutter fan. When I was a little boy he used to make them as a special dessert treat in the summer. He hasn’t made them in years. Maybe I’ll make them and surprise him.

  7. LOVE love love your nails and that cake! SUCH a bummer that your kids are still in school – what’s up with that? I got out almost two weeks ago!

  8. Alright, this look so darn delicious! I’m all about gooey marshmallow peanut butter mixture. Might have to take this one camping next week for all the little ones running around 🙂

  9. Wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong on so many levels. Yet they taste so right. *thanks* for making it so necessary to hit the gym a little bit harder today! 🙂 Yummy!!

  10. Becky

    Look amazing! Except that my son is deathly allergic to peanuts!! I’m still going to try them but using peanut-free almond butter. Any suggestions to make that successful? This will be my first recipe trying to substitute almond butter.

  11. Oh yum! these remind me of Paula Dean’s gooey butter cakes. Love the fluffernutter combo, great idea! I’ve tried the sally hansen nail strips too, I really like them I bought leopard print. Mine lasted over a week though.

  12. Donna

    Small can of Sweet Cond. Milk? Actual ounce Size?- there were 3 different sizes on the grocery shelf.

  13. Ahhhhh, white chocolate during the summer. So awesome! It’s nice to have some light flavors that don’t weigh you down.AND there’s peanut butter, so I’m officially won over.

    By the way, your nails are so cute.

  14. Just got back from walmart, picked up the things i need. I’m resisting the urge to make these RIGHT NOW. LOL. I’m going to make them for a family reunion tomorrow. I know if i make them now, I’ll probably eat them all. LOL. Thank you! My mom and I are totally addicted to your blog! You have been our “go to gal” for great new recipes that are sure to wow a crowd!

    The recipe calls for unsalted, but I think the butter shown is salted? Yes, no? Will it change the consistency or just taste?

  16. Melissa

    My daughter loves fluffernutter sandwiches…I just made these for a pool party she is hosting this weekend. They are very yummy!!

  17. Yum! I cant wait to try this. I wanted to let you know that I featured this recipe in my “What I Bookmarked This Week” post today – stop by and see.

  18. Oh, good Heavens, Jenny! These look fantastic! I’m in charge of teacher appreciation this month at church – I need a special something for them tomorrow & I just found what it will be! Thanks for your post!

  19. I’m pretty much addicted to anything that is “gooey cake bars”, but this? This is just over the top and I can’t wait to make them!

  20. Lindsay

    Yum! I just made these with a few changes. I halved the recipe in a square pan (still used 1 egg). I used chocolate cake mix and chocolate chips because that’s what I had on hand. I think next time it would be good to add some PB chips, too. Thanks for the great recipe!

  21. Made these last night – fantastic. I didn’t realize the PB/mallow mixture would stay so soft, so they were a little messier than I anticipated, but they were still delicious! Shared them with 2 different neighbors and got thumbs up all around!

  22. Monica

    Hi Jenny – I made these last weekend for a BBQ and they were a HUGE hit! Needless to say, you have many new fans 🙂 Thanks for the great recipe.

  23. Tracy

    I am planning on making these for a BBQ on Sunday. How far in advance is it safe to make them? I was planning on doing them tonight, since I have time and I’m baking something else for tomorrow night. If I keep them air tight in the fridge uncut, will they be okay for Sunday? They need to travel in the car about two hours as well. Thanks!

  24. Carolinachef

    I made these the other day and, although tasty, they did not set up well at all. I also ended up with twice as much as the recipe said I would. I am not sure if I did something wrong or if the recipe just didn’t work as planned. I’ll try again though, but maybe with a shortbread crust instead of the cake.

  25. Tom

    Made these twice to take to 2 BBQs over 4th of July weekend and they were amazing! Your instructions were perfect and they came out looking exactly like your pics. A huge hit with young and old alike! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  26. Cheryl Kelley

    These were a big hit in our house! My 9 y.o. suggested that next time, we should use a chocolate cake mix and substitute Nutella for the peanut butter and see how it tastes! I think he is on to something!

  27. Amanda

    I made these last night. The recipe was perfect and they are so, so good! I cut off the edges before making pretty squares, and am enjoying the crusts with my morning coffee.

  28. Lori

    I made these last night and they were a HIT at our house! My dd (11) who doesn’t like sweet treats asked for seconds. 6 out of 6 LOVED them!! Thank you! I didn’t have a cake mix on hand (unusual for me…) so I used my go-to recipe for a yellow cake mix:
    2 cups cake flour (I have used all purpose flour and it has worked)
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening (I only use Crisco)

    Thank you for a new favorite dessert for my family!! 🙂

  29. I commented before, but I have to update you..
    These are my 86 year old grandpa’s favorite dessert HANDS DOWN.
    (And we’re trying to get him to put on weight, so honestly.. this recipe is a blessing!)
    It’s adorable, he truly loves them. I’m making my third batch now!
    Thank you thank you for such a delicious recipe!

  30. Brittany

    my husband and i are waiting for these to cool right now. I’m tempted to just grab a fork right now lolol

    thanks for the deelish recipe 🙂

  31. Julie Thoren

    I use chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups instead of the white chocolate chips on top and it is AMAZING!!
