Goo Goo Clusters 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 2 minutes



  • 15 individual soft caramel candies
  • 35 mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups chocolate melting chips


Caramels for Goo Goo Clusters

Preheat your broiler to low. Unwrap all of the caramels. Using your hands, shape three caramels into a round shape and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Make them a bit cup shaped to hold the marshmallows.

Goo Goo Cluster on Pan

Top the caramels with 5-6 mini marshmallows and place under the broiler until soft but not toasted. Press peanuts onto the marshmallows and push on to adhere. Place the entire pan into the freezer until fully set.

Melt Chocolate on candy

Meanwhile melt the chocolate coating according to package directions.

Pouring Chocolate

Remove Goo Goo clusters from the freezer and using a spoon, drip chocolate on the tops of the candy. Return to freezer and chill until set.

Chocolate on candy

Flip the candies over and cover the bottom of the candy with chocolate. Place in the freezer to set. Remove and let candy come to room temperature. Serve.


We like using chocolate melting wafers for this recipe because it ensure the chocolate will be set outside of the refrigerator.

You can also make mini Goo Goo Clusters by using one caramel, three mini marshmallows and a few peanuts.

Perfect Pairing

Nothing says Southern dessert than Coca Cola Cake.
