Deliciously gooey, sweet and oatilicious!

So…it has been a while since i’ve even posted anything on here!  A combination and busy bee antics and needing motivation I think!  Anyway, I went to my hairdressers the other day and she asked me about the blog, said how much she liked it and that she’d been recommending it, and I thought ‘Get your butt in gear Zoe…get a post on’.  So I have!!  Rummaging in my baking pastry cabinet I realised I had some deliciously sweet Marshmallow Fluff that needing using up and that is why this recipe came about.  I started googling alternatives to just making whoopie pies (which is the key use in my Hummingbird Book) and found a great Pinterest page full of calorific, heart-attack inducing recipes.  This one stood out as it includes peanut butter…and you know how much I LOVE peanut butter.  I have included the website here but I think I made mine more filled and chose not to add the sea salt on top.  Let me know what you think!!
