I grew up snacking on Whippets, the Canadian counterpart of American Mallomars. If you’re familiar with the Danish treat flødeboller, you can see similarities too. The combination of soft cookie and marshmallow cream coated in chocolate captures the best part of s’mores without the hassle of setting up campfire. What’s not to love? I could happily wolf down a whole box without a second thought.
The “happy” part came to an end last week when I realized my own homemade concoction tastes far superior to any store-bought version. Instead of satisfying my occasional craving with a short trip to the grocery store, I now need to spend hours making Mallomars from scratch. There’s no looking back, unfortunately. I cobbled together a few of my favourite things to create these Mocha Mallomars Surprise: soft crumbly espresso shortbread biscuit from a family favourite recipe, fluffy delicate coffee marshmallow, a surprise crunchy centre of malted milk ball, all surrounded with a smooth dark chocolate. Is your mouth watering yet?
