No.67 Chocolate Peanut Mallows

I grew up on these as a kid and would always sneak into the fridge to get one more, then I would sneak back to get another not long after. They are so simple to make – no bake and taking no time to make.  Be warned, they aren’t light on the calories!

These are made back in my hometown of Peterhead in a multitude of ways. Whether they use milk or white chocolate both are delicious, and I like to combine both these together.  I prefer crunchy peanut butter to give a contrast of texture.  Some people add desiccated coconut but I personally find it takes away from the sweet richness of this treat.  Just make sure you do keep these in the fridge as they can become quite soft if left out.
