  • Quick and easy to make without a mess thanks to sandwich bags used as piping bags.

My trick to making perfect tea sandwiches:

Questions You May Have

What can I replace peanut butter with?
Replace peanut butter with any other nut butter. Just make sure it spreads easily.

How can I make this with less bread?
Make the tea sandwich two layers instead of three. So it would be from the bottom up: bread, filling, bread, filling, bread.

I don’t have a round cookie cutter. What else can I use?
Use a small drinking cup or a shot glass to press down on the bread to cut out the circles. A cup with a thin rim will cut through the bread the easiest.

What’s the best tea to pair with these?
If you’re serving the Fluffernutter to kids, go with an herbal tea which doesn’t have any caffeine. Try Strawberry kiwi herbal tea.

If you’re making these tea sandwiches for adults, go with a green tea or a black tea to cut the sweetness like Earl Grey or Genmaicha.

Fluffernutter Tea Sandwich Tips

  • Bread that’s frozen is easier and neater to cut than room temperature bread.
  • Don’t overfill each sandwich layer since the fillings can ooze out, making a mess.
  • Marshmallow Fluff with start to harden, so it’s best to make these sandwiches within a couple of hours before serving.

What You’ll Need

Fluffernutter Tea Sandwiches

How to Make It

To make 4 tea sandwiches, you’ll need:

STEP 1: Fill sandwich bags with fillings.

Instead of making a big mess by trying to spread on the sandwich fillings with a knife, I use plastic sandwich bags as piping bags which make the job so much easier.

Each sandwich bag holds one sandwich filling. 

Use a spoon to fill a bottom corner of a sandwich bag with a filling. 

Use a pair of scissors to cut a small bit off the corner.

STEP 2: Cut circles out of the bread.

Use a round cookie cutter size that’ll allow you to cut two circles from each slide of bread and cut 16 bread circles, avoiding the crust.

Twist the open of the sandwich bag to make sure the filling doesn’t ooze its way out of the bag as you’re squeezing.

STEP 3: Assemble the tea sandwich.

From the bottom up: Bread, peanut butter, bread, Marshmallow Fluff, bread, Nutella, bread.

Start with a bread circle and pipe on about 1/2 teaspoon of peanut butter in the center of the bread.

You want to avoid the edges so the fillings won’t ooze out.

Top with a piece of bread and gently press down so the peanut butter spreads out without going all the way to the edge.

Next is the Marshmallow Fluff layer. Pipe 1/2 teaspoon of Marshmallow Fluff in the center of the bread.

Add another piece of bread and gently press down.

Pipe about 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella on top of the bread. 

Be aware that Nutella isn’t as thick as the peanut butter or Marshmallow Fluff so it’ll come out quicker from the piping bag.

Top with the final layer of bread. 

And you’re done!
