How to Make Unicorn Hot Cocoa Bombs

These unicorn chocolate bombs do have quite a few steps but don’t be intimated because they do take a little time and effort but these chocolate bombs are so worth it!

Step 1: Melt the white candy melts

Place white candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave per the directions on the package.

Step 2: Fill the unicorn mold

Position a single unicorn horn sprinkle in the horn of each mold. Place 1 tablespoon melted candy melt into one cavity of the bomb mold and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even. Repeat with 6 bomb mold halves.

Step 3: Freeze the molds

Place the chocolate-filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes. Remove molds from the freezer and gently pull the mold away from the chocolate unicorns.

Step 4: Make the other half of the cocoa bomb

Fill the molds with about ½ tablespoon melted candy melt and spread this over the entire face shape of the unicorn. This will be the bottom cap of your unicorn bombs.

Step 5: Freeze the molds again

Place the chocolate-filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes. Remove molds from the freezer and gently pull the mold away from the cap for the unicorns.

Step 6: Fill the unicorn chocolate bomb

Fill the chocolate unicorns with 1 tablespoon hot chocolate mix, a few unicorn sprinkles, and 2 rainbow marshmallows.
