sandwich with peanut butter and chocolate and marshmallows sliced in a stack

Is Mercury in retrograde or something? Because nothing has been easy this week and it’s starting to drive me crazy!

This post was supposed to be a Crust and Crumbs post. But I just couldn’t write it. I tried, approximately 1,231 times. So I stopped trying and decided to share one of my favorite comfort foods with you: a sweet sandwich.

When recipe disasters strike and when nothing seems easy all week long, even when it should be, this sandwich should be your go-to comfort food.

This sweet Chocolate Fluffernutter Sandwich is filled with Nutella and peanut butter and marshmallows. I don’t know about you, but that’s a sandwich I could eat all day long!

Plus, it’s really a peanut butter sandwich. So it counts as lunch. Remember, dessert-for-lunch means you can have dessert after lunch.

But in case you want to have a dessert sandwich after a regular one, I have a few more versions for you too:

The Southwestern Grilled Cheese. It has avocado. Would you expect anything less?

And the Veggie Lovers Delight. It has zucchini. Again, would you expect anything less?

These sandwiches have one thing in common: King’s Hawaiian Bread. King’s Hawaiian is another one of my comfort foods.

Did you know that King’s Hawaiian is having a sandwich competition? Build your ultimate sandwich with their bread and you can win some awesome prizes, including a years’ worth of King’s Hawaiian Bread!

You can also read about how to throw a fabulous sandwich party, written by yours truly over on the King’s Hawaiian Blog. Go check it out, plan your sandwich party and get the recipes for all of these sandwiches!

For the rest of today, I’m going to enjoy some comfort food, and hope that my ability to function returns. Banging my head against the wall isn’t working, so hopefully the planets align better next week.

Have a wonderful weekend! Go make some sandwiches, some loaded chocolate chip cookie bars, and come back next week for a theme week. Any guesses?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m so happy to hear that I’m not the only one who thought things were a little messed this week! These recipes look amazing!! Pinning all of them 🙂

  2. I don’t really know what Fluffernutter is but I just love to say it! Makes me laugh every time!! Looks fab!

  3. How wonderful to be able to write about what isn’t working and have the post work quite well! Everyone has experienced writers/bakers block and non-optimal weeks, so your words ring true with all who read them, especially the need for comfort food like your fluffernutter sandwich! FYI, when I saw the title of the post, I thought,”What?! No zucchini?!” I was greatly relieved to see the Veggie Lovers Delight further down the page! 🙂 I hope you have a relaxing and renewing weekend, Dorothy!

  4. I’m sorry you’ve been having trouble! It is so frustrating when nothing seems to go right 🙁 But, this sandwich looks like it could make any day a little sweeter! 🙂

    1. Totally! It can fix all problems! I woke up yesterday with my mind in tact, so I think it’s better now. 🙂 Thanks Jennifer!

  5. Love Kings Hawaiian bread! I only allow myself to buy the small 4 packs because I know I’m going to eat it all! Your sandwich looks delish! I totally understand “those weeks”. Power through!

  6. Bloggers Block – bleh. I know how frustrating that is. But give me that zucchini sandwich! It looks INCREDIBLE.
