These White Chocolate Ritz Fluffernutter Bars are sweet and salty perfection! They’re no bake and come together in a snap.
I have a mail lady (mail person?) who talks on the phone all day.
Not even kidding.
She has one of those earphone things where it looks like you’re talking to yourself but really you’re talking to someone on the phone. And while I appreciate the handiness of such an invention, those things are super confusing. Because you see people talking on them and you think they’re talking to you and you answer them and then they ignore you, which is totally rude. They’re just walking around shouting and ignoring people who answer them.
So, she’s talking on this thing every day when she delivers my mail. And it’s ALWAYS during Lucy’s nap time, and she walks right by Lucy’s window shout talking, and I get super murdery because WHY ALL THE SHOUTING?? Why do people shout when they use those things?
JUST TALK NORMAL. Like on the phone.
Also, I just have so many questions. Like who does she know who is available to talk on the phone all day long? Is that even a thing nowadays? Is it the same person every day, or does she have a list of a variety of people she calls? And if she has a list, how does she know so many people who aren’t too busy to talk all the livelong day?
For awhile, I considered that maybe she has a friend that she calls briefly, right around the time she’s on my street, but then I was taking Lucy for a walk and saw her like way blocks away, doing her shout talking. Then she showed up at my house an hour later, shout talking some more. So, yes. It’s an all day thing.
Seriously, I can’t ever get a hold of anyone nowadays. What is happening?
Also, that was a lie. I never try to call anyone because that’s weird.
So what do I do about the nap thing? I have a sign I hang outside the door when Lucy naps that asks people not to knock or ring the bell. Is there a sign that says, “Hello, Do Not Shout Talk While Walking Past My Windows”? Would it be weird if I made one and put it in my yard? Are you even allowed to ask your mail people not to talk, or is that too controlling?
I really wish I could get to the bottom of this. And also I wonder if her throat ever gets dry or anything? I never see her drinking water but maybe she does when she takes a talking break.
As you can see, this is like the most exciting situation in my life right now. Which either means that I need to get a life, or I have the most interesting mail woman on the planet.
Let’s talk about dessert now.
Lately Lucy and I have been loving Ritz crackers with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. It’s our favorite snack! Sometimes we just do fluff and sprinkles on Ritz without the peanut butter…but don’t tell the boys. So yummy!
I decided I needed to make some bars with our favorite snack smashed right in the middle — and OMG they are AMAZING. I wish I could tell you there is some nutritional or redeeming quality about these bars, but the ingredients are pure junk, people. Pure, glorious, sugary junk.
They’re so incredibly simple to throw together and so good. Sweet, salty perfection. Give them a whirl, you won’t regret it.
- 16 oz vanilla almond bark
- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 50 (ish) Ritz crackers
- 1-1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
- Line a 9x13 pan with foil. Spray foil with nonstick vegetable oil spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, melt vanilla almond bark according to package directions. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and stir until smooth and combined. Spread half of the candy mixture in the bottom of your prepared pan.
- Press crackers on top of the candy, so that they are touching. You'll have roughly 7 rows of 4 crackers. Spoon peanut butter evenly over the surface of the crackers, then spread with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. I used about a heaping cup of peanut butter -- you can use more or less to suit your taste. Spoon marshmallow creme evenly over the peanut butter and spread with offset spatula or back of a spoon. It doesn't have to be perfect, so don't worry if it smears a little.
- Top surface evenly with crackers, making sure they are all touching. Pour remaining white chocolate mixture over the top of the crackers -- if it's too thick to pour, place in microwave and heat for 30 seconds at a time until it's thin enough.
- Spread candy over crackers evenly. Garnish with sprinkles if desired, and cover and refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars and serve.
Keep uneaten bars in the fridge.
You will totally love these crunchy, creamy, sweet and salty bars — and they’re SO EASY!! Love them.
Enjoy and have a great day!
