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.
