How to make Frozen Hot Cocoa Bombs

Once you have everything listed above, you’re ready to get started! Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Step one

Take the candy melts and put them in a microwave-safe bowl. Read the directions on the package and melt.

Step two

Put 1 tablespoon of the melted blue candy into one side of the bomb mold that you’ll be using. Take the bottom of your spoon and press the chocolate so that it’s up the sides of the molds. Make certain to keep it thick during this process, but also even. Repeat this for the rest of the 12 bomb molds.

Step three

Once you have those completed, place the molds in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Step four

Take the molds out of the freezer after the time has passed and begin to gently tap the sides of the molds. You can then press gently on one side of the chocolate to make it slide out of the mold easier.

Step five

Next, you’re going to want to start filling in 6 of the molds with other ingredients. Use 1 tablespoon of the hot chocolate mix, 1 teaspoon of sprinkles, and about 8 or so or the mini marshmallows.

Step six

Put a plate or a bowl that has a flat bottom in the microwave and heat it until you can feel that the surface is warm to the touch. Take one of your empty chocolate bomb halves and press it onto the flat portion of the plate for about 10 seconds or so. (with the open side of the chocolate bomb down)

Step seven

Once you notice that it’s melted, you need to act fast and press the warm edge of your cup to one of the filled cups. This will make this stick together to create the hot cocoa bomb and seal it as well.

Step eight

Now it’s time to drizzle on the remaining light blue candy on the hot cocoa bombs using a fork or piping bag. Do this with the blue first, then the white, and then add on the sprinkles, too.

Step nine

Once decorated, pop them back into the freezer for about 5 minutes to let them set.

Enjoy!
