I am so glad I found this candy recipe.
Here's an important tip I found while making this:
Don't melt your chocolate too hot, because you don't want to pour really hot chocolate over the marshmallows.
It will make it too runny.
Make sure the chocolate is just a little warm before you pour.
It helps it to stay nice and firm.
Thanks so much for the recipe, it's the best!
Although I enjoyed theses clusters, I was disappointed mine didn't harden. Did I do something wrong? I put them in the fridge and the top firmed up, but the bottom was runny. Than I put them in the freezer and they are still in there. I plan on using them to top off some ice cream at my son's 2nd birthday party.
I thought these were fantastic! I made these with milk chocolate though, not semi sweet and I think that made a big difference. I'm so glad I went with this recipe instead of making a fudge recipe from this site. These are like a peanut cluster fudge. I read one of the other reviewers comments that it did not "set" for her; but I had no such problem. After chilling for two hours they were delicious!! Creamy, Yummy! I did not use marshmallows, I just added a 16oz can of Walgreens lightly salted peanuts; I thought the sweet/salty combo would be good and it is! Just the perfect taste. Thanks for a great recipe...super easy and super delicious. It's killing me not to eat them all and save some for Christmas cookie trays!!
These were great...I filled up two disposable pie pans instead, and they were gone in two days...between only two people! You could probably make them into drop clusters as well and press a square caramel into the centers...that's how I'm going to make it next time. =)
Outstanding treats, Saundra. I took these camping with us over the weekend. I liked one reviewer's idea about adding caramel. I didn't want the caramel to melt, so I snipped little pieces and stirred them in when the mixture was slightly cooled but not set. I also added raisins.I, too, dropped them individually onto parchment paper. The only bad thing about this recipe is that they don't last long!Thanks so much for sharing.
Tasty treats! I'll definitely be making these again. I used mixed nuts instead of just peanuts and I dropped heaping soonfuls on wax paper in "clusters" instead of pouring in a greased pan. They were all eaten in a matter of minutes by my co-workers.
These took what, two minutes to make? Oh wow, they were so great! Used milk chocolate chips, and fat free condensed milk (like it even matters).
I was very dissapointed in this recipe! I had such high hopes with the title and especially the picture. They looked like "little soft fudge candies." However, the end result was what looked like and somewhat tasted like a bowl of sticky chocolate frosting lightly coating lots of marshmallows and some nuts. The coating was way too thick and there was too many marshmallows and nuts. As a result the mixture was difficult to mix or shape into anything. Marshmallows come in 10.5 oz bags, so even using less marshmallows there still was not enough of the thick chocolate mixture to coat the ingredients. I finally stuck the mixuture in the freezer to harden it slightly. After about an hour I could scoop it into globs, but they were still quite sticky and appeared like nothing more than small piles of marshmallows completely visible and lightly mixed with some chocolate frosting. It would take at least another full bag of melted chocolate to re-dip these and turn them into actual candy!
