See's Scotchmallow Eggs

Every human being, I conjecture, has an area (or two, or a handful) of expertise – fields in which he shines, topics about which she possesses unparalleled knowledge. For me, these areas include ladies’ figure skating from 1994 through 2006, the television show Friends, and the makings of a perfect Easter basket. Free marshmallow Peeps to anyone who can guess which will be explored here.

As a Communications/Chocolate Studies double major (ah, if only…) and author of a highly regarded list detailing the essential Easter basket treats, I’ve seen my share. You can imagine, then, the way my world was rocked upon my recent discovery of a creation so delicious that it makes me regret every single holiday I have celebrated without it. This transcendent treat is See’s Candies Scotchmallow Egg and it is an Easter candy for which I (the Easter Bunny’s mistress herself) would abandon all other Easter candy.

See’s Candies is a California landmark famous for its old-fashioned quality and over 100 varieties of treats. Their Scotchmallow Eggs, like all of their candies, are made from the “choicest and finest grade raw ingredients from all over the world,” and I delight in the fact that I recognize and can pronounce every ingredient listed, namely sugar, cream, chocolate, honey, egg whites, butter, and vanilla. The 0.9oz eggs are larger than your average chocolate marshmallow egg and boast a layer of thick caramel atop a bed of marshmallow, encased in quality dark chocolate. Ridges in the chocolate give a nice, hefty texture and it smells of rich dark chocolate with a slight hint of marshmallow. Almost like a high-quality Mallo Cup.

My first bite reveals that the egg has a very appealing double-coat of the smooth, cool chocolate – nice because the top layer crumbles off a bit with each bite, while the bottom continues to hug the sweet insides. The marshmallow – stretchy, sweet but not cloying, resilient – then takes center stage for a chewy moment before receding to the enduring caramel. Soft – neither runny nor chewy – the buttery, slightly salty caramel lends just the right balance to the sweet marshmallow and rich chocolate.

In a feat of chocolateering, the Scotchmallow Egg manages to present itself in stages that let each component shine, ultimately leaving the flavor of chocolate lingering on my tongue, a little soft caramel on my right molar, and a smile spreading irrepressibly across my lips. It is a perfectly done Easter candy, completely obliterating my much-hailed list and rendering the likes of Cadbury Creme Eggs and hollow chocolate bunnies entirely unappealing. These. Are. So. Good.

Scotchmallow Eggs are sold in a box of 6 for $5.00 and – too good to be seasonally constrained – are also available both as individual chocolates and as a 1.8oz bar. See’s Candies has locations throughout the western United States, Hong Kong, Japan, and Mexico, and most products can be ordered online.

    You’re the Easter Bunny’s mistress? I’m the Easter Bunny’s mistress!!! That jerk’s been two-timing us!

    PS– I’m hitting the local See’s to troll for post-Easter candy. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    Ah, See’s…the family owes a serious debt of gratitude to Mary See. My brother’s favorite candy are See’s Bordeauxs, my dad’s favorite candy are See’s Scotch Kisses (essentially the Scotchmallow egg without the chocolate), and I think my aunt had pounds and pounds of See’s goodies shipped to Japan when she was pregnant. As for me, I’m a sucker for their free samples.

    Free samples, incredible customer service AND some of the most amazing chocolate creations I’ve ever eaten…what’s not to love about See’s Candies? Oh, and I happen to live in a city with a See’s not too far from me. (Well, considering I’d drive anywhere for See’s, it really doesn’t matter where the dang store is, does it?). I have to agree that the Scotchmallow Eggs are divine. Transcendent. Etc. Got the picture? If you can’t get to a See’s in person, order some. Trust us, these are that good! Nice post, Monica! You’re the first of the 4 of us new writers to appear and it’s a great article!

    Great review! You really made me want to run out and buy some of these. Alas, there are no See’s stores near me. I love chocolate and marshmallow. Maybe that’s why I love marshmallows in my hot chocolate so much. These look divine!
