Mallies Desserts

Mallies Desserts

While doing some filming with my good friend Marcelo of Trentino Gelato I was introduced to Luby and Abraham, the mother and son masterminds behind Mallies Desserts. I had heard a lot of good things about this company but I never had the honor of trying them. This proved to be my lucky day. Luby had long been baking up delicious treats in her home kitchen and giving them away for free. This was until her son Abraham took his entrepreneuring spirit and convinced her to go into business. Many of Luby’s original recipes are still used and they are cranking out these baked goods all over town. I was lucky enough to take a sneak peek in the Mallies kitchen and I was welcomed to a buffet of sweet goodness. I have heard so many good things about the Mallies Original Brownie. This was the same brownie that is used in the Trentino Gelato. I couldn’t wait to sample this smorgasbord. The Mallies Original Brownie is unlike anything you will ever try. At first bite your senses set off a rush of ecstasy. A chewy blend of sweet and salty, make this unlike any other brownie. The rich velvety chocolate mixes so wonderfully with the secret layer of salty goodness. I tried my hardest to get the secret out but I was with no luck. All I could do was indulge on the sweet feast before me. The only way I can describe Mallies Original Brownie as a brownie cheesecake. Next up for me was a locally titled "Oh My God Bar". J. R. Cohen of Coffee Groundz named this delicious bar after he took his first bite and I would have to agree 100%. This had to be one of the most amazing sweets I had ever had. It was a perfect combo of pistachios and raspberry with a wonderful crunchy crust. This without a doubt was utter perfection. Everything that goes into Mallies Desserts is all natural so you won’t find substitutes here. They also make everything by hand. That has always been their goal. They set out to make homemade and handmade the freshest pastries and this is a goal they have far exceeded. You can find Mallies Desserts at Coffee Groundz, Agora, Skyline Deli and even Murphy’s Deli. When I originally did this interview it was meant to be a video but due to bad sound it wasn’t able to be used. Words alone can’t describe how great their desserts are, it is something you will have to try for yourself. I can guarantee you won’t be let down.

  1. Another vote for the OMG! Bar. Just fabulous in every way. The pistachios with the raspberry are a stroke of genius.
