See’s Candies

Since then, the enterprise has expanded to over 200 locations, each featuring the same checkered design. Some of the chain’s familiar yet still entirely gourmet candy — such as the peanut brittle, victoria toffee and chocolate walnut fudge — are made using Mary See’s original recipes, and all of them are still made by hand.

Mallow Box

Legacy Hall, Plano

A few years ago Mallow Box founder Martha Ware made a marshmallow bouquet as a dessert for her husband’s birthday. It was an instant hit. Martha is Brazilian American and attributes her delicious marshmallow recipe to making her own marshmallows out of necessity; apparently, it’s difficult to find marshmallows at grocery stores in Brazil, let alone gourmet candy-level marshmallows. After finding out that her marshmallows were even better than the store-bought variety, she started selling them out of her own kitchen and then opened her first location at the Shops at Willowbend. Mallow Box is now a thriving business with three North Texas locations.
