Chocolate Marshmallow Clusters *Easiest Passover Candy Recipe*

Easy Chocolate Marshmallow Clusters

As you guys know, I’m down an oven – my oven broke the Friday before Pesach and I’m *still* fighting with the home warranty company to take care of it.

Our entire Pesach menu, therefore, has had to be stove-top. Since brownies, cakes and even matzah crack all require an oven, I’ve had to get somewhat creative when it comes to dessert.

Fortunately, my family’s favorite lemon strawberry sorbet and chocolate covered strawberries don’t need an oven. But I was looking for something else I could add to my line-up. A friend suggested nut-and-raisin clusters. “Just melt chocolate and mix in nuts and raisins,” she said.

Hmmm, I thought. That sounds promising.

But then I looked at our “hail” — aka mini marshmallows — and thought, “You know what sounds really promising? Marshmallow clusters!”

The irony is that I don’t even like marshmallows. But this combination just sounded delicious to me — and a little experimenting in the kitchen proved that instinct right: These are delicious!

They are also one of the world’s easiest recipes. In fact, I’m kind of embarrassed to call this a “recipe” — that’s how easy this is!

Their only drawback is that they are hideously un-photogenic. I tried a thousand different “poses” but couldn’t get these little cluster candies to look like anything other than, well… you know. Please don’t judge this book by the cover. I promise, your kids (and you!) will love them!

Have you invented any fun new Passover dessert recipes? Please share them in the comments below. And if you try these, I’d love to hear what you think!

This recipe would not have been shared without Gevura, for her inspiration; Sarah, for her marshmallows; and Nancy, for her recipe-writing suggestions! Thank you, friends!


  1. I hope you have a new/repaired oven very soon.

    There is a candy for which hubby found the recipe years back and that I am now required to make at least three batches of every Pesach. If you have a microwave you can use for Pesach, it is a cinch to make. Alternatively, the chocolate can be melted on the stove top. It is a chocolate almond apricot candy. I have to make up bags for neighbors and even for one of our contractors! It is super easy. If you want the recipe it is at the bottom of this article:
