No bake grinch candy for Christmas
- 1 bag of Wilton Green Candy Melts
- 1 bag of Wilton Vibrant Green Candy Melts
- 1 pound almond bark
- 10 oz mini marshmallows
- 16 oz unsalted peanuts
- Wilton Jumbo Hearts Sprinkles
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!
Want to have an entire Christmas party with grinch themed food? Here are a few recipes that are really fun: grinch milk, green & red swirl cookies, mini grinch cakes, and grinch heart cookies.
I created this recipe in partnership with Wilton! They have a lot of fun Christmas ideas!

Can two bags of green candy melts be used instead of one bag of vibrant green and one bag of green? In a pinch and the store in my town only has green(dark).
Is there any substitute for peanuts to accommodate allergies? Maybe cereal?
Hi Jackie! Great question! You could always do just marshmallows. Or perhaps Kix or cheerios! Let me know what you choose!
Can you melt the candy melts in a crockpot.
Yes you can!
