If you love all things Grinch, this five ingredient rocky road candy is for you!

When making treats for the holiday season, easiest is best for our family! I'm home pretty much 24/7 and should have extra time, but Hazel, my one year old is home with me full time and I have a 14 year old too. Between those two, cooking and cleaning, that doesn't leave much time for anything other than simple.

In less than 25 minutes these delicious, green candies are all ready to eat. 

I love the crisp texture from the coating, the crunch from the almonds and softness from the marshmallows. Each bite is absolutely perfect and both kids and adults will love them.

It's also a great opportunity to get your kids in the kitchen. They can help measure, use the microwave, stir and more. What better to do when it's cold and snowy outside then make some great memories in the kitchen!

Since this recipe uses colored candy melts, you can make these any time of the year and just switch up the color and the sprinkles. Pink or red for Valentines Day, yellow or purple for Easter and orange for Halloween.

Recipe tips:


  • Rocky road candy comes in various styles. If desired, reduce the amount of marshmallows or almonds and add in a few other popular options such as candied fruit, dried fruit, walnuts, pecans, or even pistachios. 
  • If your chocolate seems extra thick, go ahead and add a bit more coconut oil and work it in, adding more if needed, until the desired consistency is reached. 
  • I don’t recommend using whole almonds as it makes the candy harder to eat. The almond slivers were the perfect size for the candy. 
  • Keep these candies in the fridge or freezer for the best results and longevity. They can be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry pantry style setting, but they won’t last as long.
  • I chose to use coconut oil because it is solid at room temp, but it may add a slight coconut taste.

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the candy melts in a medium, microwave-safe bowl and microwave them on high for 3 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stir every 30 seconds during the cooking process so you don’t burn the candy melts.
  4. Add the coconut oil to the mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Add the marshmallows and almonds. Stir until fully coated.
  6. Spoon onto the prepared baking sheet in heaping, big spoonfuls.
  7. Immediately top each candy with a red heart sprinkle.
  8. Place in the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes or until hardened.
  9. Transfer to an airtight container.

Notes:

Keep these candies in the fridge or freezer for the best results and longevity. They can be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry pantry style setting, but they won’t last as long.
