When was the Fluffernutter Sandwiches Invented?
History of the Fluffernutter
I love the fluffernutter legend. The classic New England kids’ sandwich was founded by Paul Revere’s great-great-great-granddaughter, Emma Curtis of Melrose, Massachusetts. She and her brother Amory (Paul Revere’s great-great-great-grandson) began making and marketing Snowflake Marshmallow Creme in 1913.
Emma and Amory Curtis didn’t invent the product. Many other companies sold a similar marshmallow creme.
But Emma Curtis found unique ways to glamorize the sweet fluffy treat. She thought up new recipes using marshmallow cream and had them printed in small brochures.
She spoke about the recipes on a weekly local radio show and in a local newspaper column. By 1915, Emma and Amory Curtis’s were selling Snowflake Marshmallow Creme all over their area including the New England area.
In 1919, the Curtis’s printed the “Fluffernutter sandwich recipe” aka “The Liberty sandwich” onto labels of their own product of marshmallow fluff. To find out more about this story go to the New England Historical Society website.
The origin story of Fluffernutter sandwiches dates from the First World War in New England. The original recipe for fluffernutter has not been changed since 1918.
There is even an interesting Fluffernutter song called “If You Like Fluff, Fluff, Fluff.”

How to Make a Grilled Fluffernutter Sandwich
As the griddle is heating up prepare your marshmallow fluff sandwich. With softened butter, spread a light even layer on one side of both your slices of bread.
Flip the bread over to the non-buttered side and spread a generous amount of creamy peanut butter to one piece in an even layer. On the other piece of bread spread marshmallow fluff across the whole piece. Spread that evenly over the bread.
Next, sandwich the peanut butter and the marshmallow cream sides together so that the buttered sides of the bread are out. When the Blackstone Griddle is hot, place one side of the buttered sandwich on to the flat top.
Cook for about 2 minutes and check the sandwich to see it the bread is golden brown in color. Once that side is brown, flip the bread to the other buttered side.
I grill until the second side is brown. The peanut butter/marshmallow fluff will be hot and oozing out of the center. Remove from the griddle and serve immediately.
How to Store a Fluffernutter
Cool the grilled fluffernutter sandwich. Store in an airtight container such as a plastic Rubbermaid Sandwich container or a sandwich sized Ziplock bag.
Depending on how long this sandwich is keep, the crispiness of the outside grilled portion might become soggy from all the moisture in the ingredients.
How to Freeze a Fluffernutter
A classic fluffernutter sandwich will freeze well if wrapped tight with plastic wrap and then stored in an airtight container. But a Blackstone Grilled Fluffernutter Sandwich will not freeze well.
The crispy brown crust of the sandwich will become soggy in the freezing and thawing process. So, I do not recommend freezing my grilled fluffernutter sandwich.

Classic sandwiches are great. However, you’re able to make this sandwich even more interesting by adding additional features.
I’d add banana slices and grill the bread. Grilling the bread changes things up in the sandwich. The bread is golden and crunchy inside and the inside has the consistency of peanut butter and marshmallow mixture. Is that good? So, bring some napkins.
