Feeling for something different? Hmmh that sounds good, but what? What could you try? Well,MCCN has a suggestion for you that is sweet, different, and oh so good! Mallow Munchies (now called Mallow Crunchies) is just the ticket.
Mallow what?Mallow Crunchies* are a delightful spin on rice crispy treats. I discovered these delicious little savories when I went to the Health Care for the Homeless Chocolate Affair in 2010 and boy-oh-boy was I surprised at how delicious it was. Mallow Crunchies owner, Nikki Lewis, and her husband were working together handing out the snacks, and let’s just say my “sampling” was downright embarassing, yet I had no shame. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought Nikki Lewis’ treat was on the money; they were voted “Baltimore’s Best Sweet Snack” in 2010, by Baltimore Magazine.
Here’s what you should know about Mallow Crunchies. They are unlike your traditional rice crispy treats because they are made with homemade marshmallows, made with all natural ingredients and no preservatives. Mallow Crunchies, which is based out of the Baltimore, Maryland area, makes their crunchies with toppings like Belgian chocolate and homemade caramel. They have a shelf-life of about one month and should be placed in the refrigerator, if not immediately eaten. Mallow Crunchies recommends that before you eat the refrigerated munchies, you should let it sit in order “to reactivate their gooey, chewy goodness.”
There’s good news for those in the Maryland area—Nikiki Lewis, owner of Mallow Crunchies, has begun a new chapter in dessert bar history, opening up The Mallow Bar in Rosedale, Maryland—the first rice crispy treat cafe in the country. The Mallow Bar just had its soft opening in the beginning of February and had its grand opening on Saturday, February 25th. The Mallow Bar features the Mallow Crunchies as its flagship item, also serving other desserts as well as coffee and tea.
