This holiday season I’m all about goodies.

Goodies like no bake cookies, bark, and toffee. Recipes that don’t require you to turn on your oven – usually meaning they are quick and easy treats to make!

This recipe for Sticky Paws is a Williams Sonoma copycat. They sell a single container for $30 and a double for $60! YIKES!

My estimate of how much it costs to make about 25+ clusters..

$2.30 for one bag of caramel squares
$4-5 for a bag of whole almonds (at Aldi!)
$3.75 for a package of chocolate almond bark
$2 for a whole container of heavy cream

That’s roughly $13! And if you make smaller cluster (with like 4-5 almonds in each) you’ll get even more :)

Start by placing a silicone baking mat or parchment paper on a baking sheet. Form small clusters with about 7-10 almonds in each cluster.

Unwrap the caramel squares – place the caramel and heavy cream in a small pot. Stir occasionally until most of the caramel is melted, than stir constantly until the caramel is fully melted. This may take about 7 minutes.

Remove the caramel from the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes. Then use a small cookie scoop or spoon to spoon the caramel over each cluster. Place the baking pan in the freezer while you melt the almond bark. This will help speed up the cooling process of the caramel.

In a small pot over medium low heat on the stove, melt the chocolate almond bark. Once the chocolate is melted, remove it from the heat. Remove the baking pan from the freezer.

Begin to dip the clusters in the melted chocolate.

Place one cluster in the chocolate at a time, removing it from the chocolate with a fork. Tap off the excess chocolate and place the cluster back on the lined baking sheet. Repeat until all the clusters are dipped. Allow the clusters to harden on the counter. Once the chocolate is hardened, place the clusters in a tupperware container and keep them in the fridge.

You can add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of the caramel before it cools if you like the salted caramel flavor.

  1. I saw your recipe for Sticky Paws. We grow our own pecans so I am going to substitue roasted pecans for the almonds. Thanks for sharing. Looks amazingly simple.

  2. Mmmmm

  3. Love that you updated your pictures to be all Christmas-y!! Plus love these candies!

  4. Do you have to use raw almonds or can you use roasted almonds?

  5. Would like calorie content and grams of sugar per serving if possible.

  6. Awesome recipe and stunning photography!

  7. I love everything about these! They would make such a great treat to give during the holidays!

  8. That is amazing. I love almonds!

  9. I really need to get candy making onto my holiday list, because these look amazing!

  10. Just made these and they were incredibly easy and oh so good!  Never knew making candy could be so easy!    Thanks Thanks for the delicious recipe!  Merry Christmas!

  11. Have you ever made this with Pecans (you know turtles)?

  12. I’m not quite sure where to get almond bark. Where is it sold?

    • At all major grocery stores! It will be in the baking aisle. It can also be called candiquik or you can use Wilton’s candy melts too.

  13. Would any chocolate work? I’d like to use a high quality dark chocolate instead of the bark or candiquk. Thoughts? Thanks.

    • Hi Kim! It won’t set the same way that almond bark or candiquik will. If you keep the paws in the fridge, regular chocolate might be okay, but I would assume the chocolate would get a little melty at room temp.

  14. I did not have any parchment paper so I used wax paper. BIG mistake!!! It stuck very badly!

  15. I couldn’t seem to get the chocolate not to pool when I put them back after dipping. How did you get it so clean? I tapped it to let the chocolate run off.
