Fluffernutter HiFi Buddy Bars—Prototype 3:
With this prototype, I discovered that the square glass dish ("pan") that I had been using all along in many of these Bran Buddy/Hi-Fi Buddy recipes was, in fact, highly likely of an 8" x 8" size (at least according to the numbers etched thereon and confirmed by tape measure, combined with my failing to locate an alternative similar-looking dish), rather than 9" x 9".

What about the bigger, rectangular glass dish ("pan") that I also likely used? I could not find any dimensions etched into this one, although I did see "3QT" (which I assumed to mean three quarts). So I took out my tape measure and came up with about 8.5" x 13.5", as opposed to 9" x 13".

Hopefully, the differences aren't too big, especially for the larger rectangular dish. Nevertheless, for this Buddy Bar prototype and later, I felt that I would state 8" x 8" every time the square dish was used—and stick with mentioning 13" x 9" for the rectangular, out of simplicity (particularly since that was close enough in area to 8.5" x 13.5").

Okay, enough of this size discrepancy discussion on these Pyrex dishes—bring on the bars!
Increase the peanut butter...slightly.

Sequential details:
1 large "tub" (i.e., 16 ounces) Marshmallow Fluff (or other marshmallow cream)
7 oz. unsalted peanut butter
Tip: Heat these first two ingredients, blend well, then (if needed) heat again just before adding the last ingredient. This should help ease the stiffness somewhat.
13.2 oz. Bran Buds, ground up (last ingredient here!)

Mix hard and quickly, press into an 8" x 8" pan or dish, level off and cut into bars (store at room temperature).
Nice taste. A great hit at the Sports Page, at which point we also celebrated Lesa's birthday.
