Boyer Candies

 Mallo Cups!  Love the classic packaging!
 Big Lots has just about the whole line of the Boyer's Candy Company products: Mallo Cups, Smoothies, and Peanut Butter Cups. After further investigation and consumption I learned that The Boyer Company has been making candies since 1936. Their most popular candy is the Mallo Cup which is, for those not in the know, a milk chocolate covered marshmallow centered candy cup.

However I really think the Smoothie is the yummiest.  It is a butterscotch covered peanut butter cup.

Along with Boyer making tasty treats and having cool packaging, there is another element of fun with these candies. Inside each package of candy is a cardboard card of "play money".  The "play money"  or coin card is the printed tray on which the candy sits. The coins range in amounts from 5-50 points.  These can be saved up to be used toward prizes (ie: mallo cup t-shirt!) or just turned in for actual money.  For every 500 points you send in you can get back one whole dollar.  There are no expiration dates on the cards so they can be saved for as long as you want.  In 2004, a Mallo Cup fan turned in 100,000 points earning him $200.

The website has tons of really fun recipes to use their candies and other baking products in. We had a hard time making a decision but narrowed  it down to trying out the Mallo Cup Coconut Cake. 

Mallo Cup Coconut Cake
  • 10 Fun-bite sized Mallo Cup candies
  • 1 lb Boyer Coconut
  • 1 tub refrigerated non-dairy whipped cream
  • 1 lb Boyer Mallo Fluff*
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 box Devil's Food cake mix
1. Bake cake as directed on package in sheet cake pan.
2. While cake is warm, prick with fork. Pour sweetened condensed milk over warm cake. 
Pour Boyer Mallo Fluff over warm cake. Allow to melt then spread over cake.
3. Place cake in refrigerator until cool. Spread non-dairy whipped cream over cool cake. 
Sprinkle coconut over cream. Decorate top of cake with Mallo Cup candies!

The cake turned out very well.  It is very rich and honestly did not need the extra-ness of the Mallo Cup on the top.  A few other of their recipes that sounded yummy: Mallo Cup Macaroons, Elvis Peanut Butter Cup and Banana Pancakes, and Smoothie Funnel many to choose from, so many calories to pack on!
