Grinch Peanut Marshmallow Clusters
There is nothing easier than combining chocolate, peanuts and marshmallows for the holidays!
Candy clusters are an easy to make dessert if you’re short on time or if you want to bring something last minute for a party.
These particular peanut marshmallow clusters are GRINCH themed!
This is a cute recipe to make with your family & kids – especially if they like the Grinch!
No bake grinch candy for Christmas
If you want a deeper green color, you can add additional green food coloring to the melted mixture before adding the peanuts and marshmallows.
How to make grinch candy
Once the mixture is combined, use a cookie scoop to drop clusters on a silicone mat or wax paper.
If you haven’t invested in a silicone mat yet, it’s the best kitchen tool ever! I have 3 and use mine all the time for baking cookies, and making candy recipes like sticky paws, spicy nut clusters, pecan pralines, and oreo balls.
If you’re interested in buying a silicone mat, I have this one from amazon and really like it!
I used 2 different sized cookie scoops to make these grinch clusters. An extra large scoop and a standard size scoop. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can use a tablespoon or 2 spoons to drop the clusters.
Pop a Wilton Red Heart Sprinkle on each cluster before the chocolate sets and you have the cutest grinch candy clusters! I think these babies would make my heart grow 3 sizes!
I created this recipe in partnership with Wilton! They have a lot of fun Christmas ideas!
- In a large pot over medium-low heat, combine the almond bark and both bags of candy melts. Stir occasionally until the mixture is melted and smooth.
