Almond Butter Grinch Candy Hearts are Perfectly-Sized for Holiday Treats!

The Grinch may have a heart that is three sizes too small, but these sweet treats are perfect! They are fun to make and offer a beautiful display for dessert tables. Even the kids can get involved in making these little hearts. My oldest son is allergic to almonds, so I have also made these with peanut butter for him to be able to enjoy. Either way, they’re delicious!

Ingredients and Tools to Make Almond Butter Grinch Candy Hearts:

  • Light green candy melts
  • Almond butter
  • Candy heart sprinkles
  • Heart candy mold
  • Pastry brush
  • Plastic ziplock baggies

How to Make Almond Butter Grinch Candy Hearts:

Pour candy melts into a microwave safe bowl, setting about 10 aside for later, and heat in 30 seconds intervals, stirring well between each heating session, until fully melted.

Drizzle a spoonful of melted candy into each mold cavity, and use the pastry brush to coat the entire bottom and sides. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Put almond butter into a ziplock baggie and snip off the corner, then drizzle almond butter into each candy coated mold, filling it just under the top of the mold.

Using a small spoon, add melted candy to fill the rest of each mold cavity. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.

Remove candies from the mold and place upright.

Place the remaining 10 candy melts into a ziplock baggie and heat for 30 seconds in the microwave, remove and massage the bag. If not completely melted, heat in 10 second intervals, until melted.

Snip off the corner of the baggie, and add a small drop to the top of each candy, then top with a candy heart.
