Mallo Cups and Non-Pareils with Ambrosia

Mallo Cups and Non-Pareils with Ambrosia  This recipe is two-fold. Mallo Cups and Non-Pareils are my hubby’s favorite candy. Whenever he sees a package of mallo cups, he buys a package, or two. Same thing goes with non-pareils, only they are much harder to find.

Pecan Pie M & M Candy Fudge

Both my son and daughter-in-law are teachers, so whenever I go on one of my fudge making marathons, I can always count on them to bring extra fudge to school. Even though my son-in-law Fred is my go-to fudge guy, this past weekend I went with Kim to our annual Stampin’ Up, Holiday Stamp Camp and brought with me this fudge for her to bring to school. Kim said it was a “Fan Favorite,” not making it to first period.

New “Pecan Pie” Flavor

Pecan Pie candy fudge is made with the ‘new’ pecan pie flavored m & m’s. My biggest ‘candy’ weakness is for m & m’s. To me eating a bag of m & m’s isn’t the same as let’s say eating a king size candy bar. Eating a handful of m & m’s seems to me anyway, to contain fewer calories than a big ol’ candy bar. All of the ‘flavors’ of m & m’s that I’ve tried have been super good. My favorites being the Mint and Holiday White Peppermint flavors. I love the combination of chocolate with the flavor of cool mint. Sorry Kim.

Two ‘New’ Flavors

This year, the two new flavors we tried were pecan pie and pumpkin pie flavored m & m’s. What can I say, I loved them both. No surprise there! I actually liked the pumpkin pie flavored better than the pecan pie flavored only because the pumpkin pie flavored has a more subtle flavor. Both inspired me to make a batch of fudge. Last year I tried the candy corn flavored m & m’s and made White Chocolate Candy Corn Fudge .

Fast and Easy

Pecan Pie m & m candy Fudge is made with the same recipe that I use when making all the fudge here on Turnips 2 Tangerines. We use the same basic fudge recipe but change it slightly to allow for different taste flavor sensations. We make this recipe taste different just by changing the chocolate chips used, candy and nut additions used and sometimes with only the slightest change, just by changing the extract or flavoring used.
