Homemade Peanut Butter Fluff
I had the most AMAZING opportunity to visit Ohio with the American Dairy Association Mideast. We ate ALL THE CHEESE, fed baby cows with bottles, got to be Cleveland Browns for a day, and had the best time. Another highlight of the trip was an unforgettable meal in Amish Country.
Seated in the home of a truly lovely family, we were fed…and fed…and fed. And I’ll never be the same! It was divine. And the star of the show was a Peanut Butter Fluff Spread!
I knew I had to try it at home. Our gracious host told us the ingredients…and it’s all I’ve thought about since!
Be sure to try my Pear Butter too!

How to make peanut butter fluff

- Boil the water and molasses.
- Stir in the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff.
How long does it keep?
Once you have made your peanut butter fluff, let it cool before transferring to a sealable mason jar. It will keep well in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, though I doubt it will last that long!
What’s the best peanut butter to use?
I like to use a creamy peanut butter for this spread rather than a crunchy one so that it’s nice and smooth. It’s best to avoid natural peanut butter as the oil can separate.
You can spread this peanut butter fluff on anything! On toast, crackers, apple slices, your finger…it doesn’t matter! Perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert…what am I missing? It’s perfect for everything!
Recipe Notes and Tips
- Adjust the recipe to suit your preferences. If too thin, add more peanut butter and marshmallow in equal increments.
- You can mix together the ingredients by hand, but it’s quicker and easier with an electric or stand mixer.
This spread is SO addicting, I can not wait for you guys to try it, and I can not wait to make another batch!

This didn’t come out right at all! I followed the recipe, I did use a blender. It tastes like a really smooth peanut butter. I’m disappointed

Hi! My husbands family (Hardin) is from St Louis. Small world!
This looks great. I have been looking for this recipe for a while. I wanted something like this to put in chocolate heart molded boxes. How great would this be to get a box made out of chocolate filled with this peanut butter fluff. Thanks for sharing. Tomorrow this will be a thing.
Such a cute idea!
I’d be eating this with a spoon! This spread sounds so good!
Thank you Jessica!!
I live just around the corner from Amish country in ohio and spend lots of time there. The Amish peanut butter spread recipe is. 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup water, 2Tbsp. Karo syrup, 1tsp. Maple flavoring, 1 pint marshmellow creme, 2 cups peanut butter. Bring to a boil the brown sugar, water, and Karo, and add maple flavoring. Mix marshmellow creme & peanut butter in, stir in while hot. If you think it’s to thin add more marshmellow creme & peanut butter. I think you will like the creaminis of this spread. It’s super yummy on a roll with apple butter, it’s like desert before your meal! I hope you give it a try?
AWESOME!!! That sounds great and would make this creamier for sure! Thanks for commenting!!!
This sounds like heaven! I can think of so many uses for it!
Oh yes ma’am…I’m going to smother some of this delightful fluffy dream on my green apples. Yum!
You are quite the cowgirl now! Now we just need to get you a mini pony!
Ha…I would really like a mini pony!
As a native Ohioan, I grew up on this stuff, only we called it Amish Peanut Butter/Amish Church Spread or just plain old Church Spread (the Amish being understood.) Many years latter a dear friend of mine who had worked for one of the larger Amish resturaunts gave me the actual recipe used by the Amish for this DELISH spread. My son, who is now 28 still to this day request this for Christmas every year (he’s in the Military and hasn’t been in Ohio for almost 10 yrs now.) He LOVES to dip pretzels in it!!! The original recipe has several more ingredients and makes a huge amount, so I’ll have to try your recipe -which is a much more manageable amount.
This is awesome!! Thanks for saying hi, means a lot!
Oh my goodness, this looks and sounds completely addicting. I’ve got to try this recipe, I know everyone in my family would love it!!
Thanks so much Joanie!
I live in Amish Country, too, here in northern IN, but it’s called Amish
Peanut Butter in this area. Still just as yummy!
That is so awesome! Isn’t it delicious! Thanks for stopping by Laura!
