Stuffed Mallo Cup Bars


Stuffed Mallo Cup Bars |

I don’t understand how some candy isn’t more popular. Take the Mallo Cup for example. They are just like a peanut butter cup but with marshmallow cream. Um hello? Marshmallows! And chocolate! Can you imagine the smores you could make using these? Unfortunately, the candy industry is a tough business, which is why most of your childhood favorites have disappeared (I read the book Candyfreak that describes what a dog-eat-dog the candy world is for companies to get stock on the shelf). Fortunately, Mallo Cups are still around. A little harder to find, yes, but not impossible. I debated on posting these Stuffed Mallo Cup Bars, simply because of accessibility to the candy, but after asking awhile back on Facebook, you wanted it.

Fun fact – I live about 90 minutes away from the Mallo Cup factory. I’ve never actually been there before. I know they don’t do tours, but they do have a factory store. I can only imagine how dangerous that would be. Especially if they have bite-size Mallo Cups. I want to make peanut butter cookie cups but with mini Mallo Cups.

Don’t you hate it when you have to go to the store several days in a row because you keep forgetting something? Especially when the same cashier waits on you and you’re buying all junk. Hopefully she got the hint that I am a baker after buying several boxes of butter, cream cheese, and candy bars. To be fair, I did have some fruit to make my Mango Salsa. I say this because I had to go back to the store to buy more Mallo Cups after my first batch failed. I was already at the store twice that week, and of course the same cashier waited on me (again) for the third night that week (I swear I eat real food).

Also, as I was writing this post, I realized it is Mallo Cups, not Mallow Cups. I’ve been spelling it wrong all of my life.

Yields 16

Stuffed Mallow Cup Bars
Save Recipe


16 (0.5 ounce) Mallo Cups
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cookie butter (can substitute peanut butter)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Freeze the Mallo Cups for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F. Have an 8x8 pan ready.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, beat together the cookie butter, butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, milk, and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture.
  5. Remove the Mallo Cups from the freezer and unwrap. Spread about half of the batter into the pan. Place the Mallo Cups on top in rows (4x4). Cover each Mallo Cup with the remaining batter (you may not have enough batter to cover the entire layer. Just make sure each cup is covered). Bake 20-25 minutes or until the bars are set and toothpick comes out clean (avoid sticking it into a Mallo Cup). Let cool completely before cutting.

    Have always loved mallo cups. What in the world is “cookie” butter? I have never heard that term

  4. Okay, when I come to visit, we’re going to schedule a tour with the Mallo Cup factory. They’ll want us.

  5. I am in love with these! OMG I’d eat all of them. Why have I never had a mallow cup???

  6. Ya know, I’ve never given mallo cups a lot of thought but now I’m like…yes….I should have those!

  7. I’m going to hunt down some mallow cups! YUM!

  8. Carla,
    Mallo cups were one of my faves growing up in the dark ages. I’ll have to research, where to buy them in Chicagoland . Thanks for jogging my memory:) Hopefully, I can find these soon.

  9. These sound amazing! I’m a candy junkie and always sad when I can’t find my faves. Love that you used cookie butter too.

  10. That’s so cool! I’ve never seen Mallow Cups here but I’m going to look for them

  11. A chewy bar cookie is the best. Nothing like some marshmallow to up the chewiness. These look wonderful!

  12. So, I’ve got my cookie butter and have finally stopped procrastinating on making these. I have a question though … step #2 says have 8×8 pan ready. Does the pan need prepped in a particular way, or are you just stating the size of the pan> Thank you,

  13. Mallow Cups are hard to find, even in Altoona where they have always been made. My parents are from Altoona, PA. home of the Boyer Candy factory. So I get there often but can not always find them in local stores. They do have a store that is open during the week, possibly on Saturdays, not sure. Check out their website. I do know you can buy a box of “seconds” from the store/factory which would be perfect for this recipe. I have a box and will be making these this weekend! You can also order Mallo Cups anytime of the year. They have a website. Enjoy!

  14. I’m surprised stores in Altoona don’t sell them! I know about the factory store but haven’t made it there myself. Thanks for the insight!
