Rocky Road Clusters Recipe

I don’t know about you, but every year after Halloween we have a ton of chocolate and candy leftover. Giving it away to friends isn’t an option as they are usually facing the same issue!

I made these rocky road clusters as a way to use up some of this chocolate as well as some extra mini marshmallows (we had a cookie and cupcake decorating party…hence the marshmallows). Feel free to add any other candies you happen to have on hand. I think pretty much anything would work.

If you still have candy after making these clusters, try using it for this candy corn bark or these white chocolate and peanut butter pretzel rods.


  • 14 ounces milk chocolate
  • 3 ounces pretzel sticks, broken into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


Line two standard 12 cup muffin tins with cupcake liners. Set aside

Melt the chocolate, in the microwave or in a bowl set over a pot of simmering water. Once melted, allow the chocolate to cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the pretzels and marshmallows. Feel free to add any other candy you have on hand!

Drop a spoonful of the mixture into the lined cups of the muffin tin. I use a soup spoon. Place the filled tins into a fridge and leave the clusters to set for at least 1 hour. Best kept in an airtight container in the fridge.

If freezing, you can transfer the clusters to a freezer bag and keep in the freezer until ready to eat or up to three months.


Making more treats with the candy you have leftover doesn’t entirely solve the problem…because you just end up with more treats to eat! My solution: freeze these goodies and bring them out once you have worked your way through your glut of Halloween candy! A great way to have something on hand at all times. I don’t know about you, but this is exactly the kind of thing I love after dinner.
