Raise your hand if you like chocolate, caramel, marshmallow fluff, and salted peanuts! If you enjoy all of those ingredients separately be prepared to love them all together! (you can put your hand down now)
These Gooey Clusters are a simple and easy treat to throw together to impress friends, family, and a load of internet people you don’t know!
I need to say the sentence above in your best announcer’s voice. That’s how I hear it being said out loud!
See, it totally sells them when you’re saying it in an announcer sort of way. An announcer voice can get people to do anything. Including making sweet chocolate treats!
Or you just write a blog and get people to put their hands up and talk in announcer voices and to make cake!
Back to the Gooey Clusters! These babies don’t require any fancy gimmicks to get someone to make them. They sell themselves! The only words you need to make these are: chocolate, caramel, marshmallow fluff, and salted peanuts … plus you need to know how I did make them! The recipe is as follows….
150g Dark Chocolate
12 tsp salted peanuts
12 tsp caramel sauce
12 tsp marshmallow fluff
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a simmering pot of water, make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water.
Once it’s melted place 12 teaspoons of the melted chocolate in the bottom of 12 fairy cake cases lined in a muffin/cupcake tin. Then add a teaspoon of peanuts, caramel sauce, and marshmallow fluff to each case before topping again with a tsp of dark chocolate. Leave to set in the fridge for 2-4 hours. If they aren't all gobbled up right away store in the fridge. Also the caramel sauce and marshmallow might leak out of holes, but that’s okay!
notes: Gooey Clusters are inspired by a popular candy (chocolate) bar called a Goo Goo Cluster, that is very popular in parts of southern America: the base is a marshmallow-y nougat base topped with a layer of caramel and peanuts and completely covered in chocolate. The recipe/idea was inspired by The Chew Food. Life. Fun.
