What the heck can I do with Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cream?

My folks brought me a jar of Amish-made peanut butter marshmallow cream. I have no idea what to do with this, and google isn't helping! Any thoughts for recipes that incorporate peanut butter marshmallow cream? (or marshmallow cream in general?) I'm not much of a baker, but I'm more than willing to have a go at it!

Thank you!

  1. Peanut butter fudge, and/or rice krispy treats. Neither requires baking. Or use storebought cookies to make sandwich cookies.

      Greygarious, this is totally unrelated, but we have a greyhound, too! :)

    2. Fluffernutter Sandwiches.

      Or is that too obvious?

        That was my second thought, ipsedixit. My first was spoon.

        I would probably also enjoy a grilled peanut butter marshmallow cream and banana sandwich.

      2. Frosting or filling for cake would be good. Make whoopies pie and use it as filling. Ice cream topping might also be too obvious.

        1. Blend with an equal quantity of cream cheese and dip crisp apple slices in it.

            1. You can use it in the middle of a cake as a filling or in cupcakes as a filling.

              1. Open mouth, insert spoon. Repeat.

                1. Bake a pan of brownies (it may not be chow-ish, but a mix does work pretty well here). Freeze it for about an hour. Spread the marshmallow cream on top. Freeze for about 30 minutes. In the meantime, melt some chocolate (or chocolate chips), perhaps stirring in a bit of peanut butter, too. Once chocolate is melted, stir in some crispy rice cereal. Pull brownie/marshmallow cream out of freezer, spread melted chocolate mixture on top. Freeze for about 30 minutes, then transfer to fridge. Store in fridge, else cream might soften up too much and run. I've made this with plain marshmallow cream/fluff, don't see why it wouldn't work with a flavored variety. It's a fairly rich, sweet dessert, but has always been a big hit.

                  A different approach: bake a pan of brownies. Cool/freeze so that crumbs don't get in the way when spreading marshmallow cream over the brownies. Top with graham crackers. Voila! 'Smores brownies.

                  Plus, of course, the other suggestions below, all of which sound really good, too!

                    1. Thank you all for the suggestions! I'll let you know what I make!

                        S'mores-graham crackers w/ warmed marshmallow creme and chocolate sandwiched in between. Could be nuked or wrapped in foil and put in oven for a few minutes to melt.
