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.

Classic Combination

There are many classic flavor combinations but none are beloved as much as peanut butter and chocolate. Everyone of all ages loves this classic flavor duo. Mint and chocolate is another classic combo and one of my favorites but peanut butter and chocolate, well that’s just darn good. Personally speaking, I think that Reese’s put peanut butter cups on the proverbial culinary map but..

Another popular brand when I was growing up (way back in the 60’s) was a company called Boyer. Boyer Candy Company are the makers of the “Original” Peanut Butter Cup, or so they claim. They’re also the makers of Butterscotch “Smoothie” Peanut Butter Cups, Clark candy bars and the much loved Mallo Cup.

Boyer

The Boyer Candy Company is the maker of my hubby’s all thyme favorite candy, the Mallo Cup. Mallo cups have been around for-ever. The creamy marshmallow center is surrounded by milk chocolate, making it a favorite among marshmallow fans. Even though I love peanut butter cups, my favorite Boyer cup has always been the “smoothie” cup. The smoothie cup has a crunchy peanut butter filling with a butterscotch coating. Smoothie peanut butter cups are everything you know and love in a peanut butter cup but more (at least in my humble culinary opinion:)

Growing up in the 60’s, Boyer was a popular brand of candy. Not only that, Boyer Candy was relatively inexpensive, compared to its name brand competitors. For example, let’s say that in 1966 a Reese’s peanut butter cup sold for .30¢. A Boyer original peanut butter cup would have sold for .15¢ making the Boyer brand popular amongst the neighborhood kids. Each “cup” came with, and still does, Boyer money;) If you saved up enough Boyer paper money, you would send the money into the Boyer candy company and a few weeks later you’d receive a free mallo cup, smoothie or original peanut butter cup. This was during a simpler time when shipping charges weren’t sky high.

Some History

Proudly made in the United States, Boyer Candy has been making confections since the early Depression Years. After starting their candy business in their mother’s kitchen, the Boyer Brothers made candy that you know and love today. Boyer Candy is the proud creator of the Mallo Cup, the first cup candy in America! Mallo Cups are a fan favorite, and a delicious combination of milk chocolate combined with a fluffy and sweet marshmallow center. There was a period when you couldn’t find Boyer cups anywhere but thankfully the Boyer company has made a come back if you will and is back by popular demand. Labeled as “Retro” candy, Boyer cups can be found everywhere again:) Much to my hubbys delight.
