Happy Mother’s Day to all of my mom and soon-to-be mom friends! I hope that all of you had a great weekend. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen but also a lot of time outside. The sunny and warm weather makes me so happy. Yesterday I got to take a long walk along the water with a good friend. We caught up on life and it was wonderful. Today we celebrated Mother’s Day by grilling and eating outside with family. The fresh air is like free therapy.
After the last chocolate cluster recipe I made, I knew I wanted to make another version. They are so easy to whip up and so delicious. Who doesn’t love homemade candy filled with delicious mix-ins? So in the midst of a baking marathon, I made some Oreo Mallow Clusters in a matter of minutes. They are milk chocolate clusters filled with Oreos and marshmallows (or in my case Peeps). And you know what? Huge success. It figures that this 10-minute recipe turned out so much better than an overly complicated dessert I also made.
To make these, you will need some broken up Oreos
And chopped up Peeps (sorry bunnies)
And of course milk chocolate
Just melt your chocolate
Stir in the mix-ins
And drop clusters onto wax paper
Chill in the refrigerator
Oreo Mallow Clusters
Ingredients (Makes 15 clusters)
- 12 ounces high-quality milk chocolate
- 1 1/3 cups Oreo chunks (~8 Oreos)
- 2 cups chopped Peeps (~8 Peeps) or marshmallows
- Gently melt the chocolate in 30 second increments in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring in-between
- Once chocolate is completely melted, add Oreos and Peeps and stir until completely coated
- Use a tablespoon to drop large clusters of the mix on a baking sheet lined with wax paper
- Chill chocolates in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until candy is completely firm
- Store chocolates in a cool place for up to 7 days
P.S. The above picture was taken with my Dad’s DSLR, what an amazing quality difference! I am FINALLY getting one and hopefully my blog will be prettier very soon.
How was your weekend? Is the weather getting better where you live?
These look so delicious! Great idea!
“Peeps were most certainly harmed in the making of these clusters.”
LOL I actually thought of your road-kill brownies when I chopped the Peeps heads off
Omg these look fabulous. Oreos are my favorite :D
I love that you decapitated all the peeps! Hahaha!
hahaha those bunnies look so sad :P
A perfect surprise treat for a perfect day!
Fresh air DEFINITELY has curative properties. So does sunlight. i’m convinced.
These sound almost TOO easy to make. That whole ten minutes thing would be dangerous. But absolutely delicious!
these totally look worth the emotional havoc wrought from chopping off peep bunnies heads :)
Congrats on the soon-to-come camera! And look at all that wine in the fridge! OoooooOOOoooOOO:)
Weather was quite nice over the weekend here, it’s nice to see leaves on the trees. Finally.
Haha wine and chocolate might be the most important items in that fridge:-)
I need these in my life…in a big way!
Oooh, I have leftover Peeps!! I thought about making smore’s but this sounds truly delish!
I almost threw ot a box of purple bunny pees the other day but then realized that some awsome food blogger would come up with a creation to use them up. Thanks for the post…I will have to try this treat ASAP!
Oh make them!
Great way to put the last of the peeps to good use!
I’ve never wanted a pack of peeps so bad in my life :)
Yum… these look amazing!
These look so good Lauren! Glad you had a nice weekend with your family!
My daughter would attack that in no time.
I love little chocolate clusters like these. It’s so easy to customize what goes in them based on what you have in your pantry. And although I’ve never had a single Peep (can you believe it?!) these look like a great way to get your feet wet in Peep-eating. :)
Ah never? You need to try them!!
These sound delicious! I can’t wait to make these! Thanks!!!
How fun are these! Hilarious the way you chopped up those peeps.
OMGosh! These look amazing! Love your blog, now following! Miss Walker xoxo
Wow, how incredible! And the perfect thing to do with leftover peeps :)
these look soo good!!! must try, however i do not have any peeps but im sure mini marshmallows will work
Wow! These look amazing! I’ll eat anything with oreos :)
LOL! We are still trying to get rid of the Easter candy here too! Looks yummy!
These look great, and such a fantastic way to use up extra peeps!
What a novel and tasty way to finish the Easter candy. This is my first visit to your blog and I’ve been browsing through your earlier posts. I really like the food and recipes you feature here and I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary
Aww the pink peeps were cut up! Haha I would totally murder them too if only to bathe them in chocolate and oreo bits. These look awesome!
PS – a DSLR is on my wish list too!
I finally got mine yesterday! I can’t wait to put it to use:-)
Those remind me of my favorite truffle from See’s, the Scotchmallow. Yours look incredible, and you’re going to have so much fun with your new camera!
yum! haha love the headless peeps. P.S. I found a plate just like your little flower one at a thrift shop and I am in love with it. so cute :)
These look so yummy!
they look super yummy xxxxxxx
oh another great idea, yes please! sign me up.
Your blog speaks to my heart :), any ideas what to sub marshmallows for? (i dont eat gelatin)
Hmm, you could do a lot of things. Maybe peanuts or peanut butter chips? Totally different but delicious.
oh my gosh, those look incredible!
My first thought was….peep massacre! My second…gimmie! These look so good and so very easy to whip together.
How creative these are! Great use of peeps!
