Spring Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe

Ingredients

1 ⅓ c light green candy melts*
¼ c bright pink candy melts*
1 tbsp each of gold and white sugar sprinkles rainbow sprinkles
Rainbow Daisies Icing Decorations
Leaf Shaped sprinkles
Violet Edible Glitter Spray
⅓ cup mini marshmallows
3 heaping tbsp hot cocoa mix

*To get the gorgeous spring colours and to make this hot chocolate bomb project easier, especially for kids, we are using candy melts instead of regular chocolate. If you are comfortable with tempering and working with chocolate, you could replace the candy melts with white chocolate and use food colouring as desired.

Materials and Supplies

1 small sized glass bowl
1 medium sized glass bowl
Silicone spatula

Silicone half sphere mold
Kitchen shears
Sandwich size food storage bag
1 small heat safe plate
Food safe gloves (optional)
Parchment paper
Microwave

Directions

View the video to see visuals of all the steps to make a hot chocolate bomb. If you can’t see the video, turn off any adblockers, as they block our video feed.

STEP 1

Heat the green candy melts in a medium sized glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power. Stir well, and continue heating in 30 second intervals until the wafers are fully melted and smooth/creamy. Place the silicone sphere mold on a flat serving tray or baking sheet, and spoon approximately one tablespoon of the melt into the molds. Thoroughly coat the inside of the mold with a small silicone spatula or the back of a spoon. Make sure the edges a little thicker. This helps ensure they don’t break when melding together. If the candy is pooled at the bottom, spread again to evenly coat all sides and ensure a nice even layer all over. Place the mold in the refrigerator for 3-5 minutes to set.

STEP 2

Cover your work area with parchment paper. Once set, remove the mold from the refrigerator, and begin slowly pulling the mold away from the spheres on the sides first, and then lightly push from the bottom to remove them. Place on the parchment paper. Try to handle them as little as possible to avoid fingerprints, or melting. To reduce fingerprint smudges, wear food safe gloves. This can be especially helpful for kids learn how to make these hot chocolate bombs.

STEP 3

Place a small plate in the microwave and heat it for approximately 20 seconds. Place a green sphere open side down onto the plate. Twist it a little to get the edges slightly melted, and then immediately flip back over and fill with a heaping tablespoon of hot chocolate mix and about 10 marshmallows.  Place another sphere on the plate and twist, and once the edges are slightly melted, place it on top of the filled sphere. You can twist them slightly to help meld them together. If you have any cracks that didn’t seal, heat a spoon in hot water, dry thoroughly, and use it to smooth around the seam. Repeat this process to make 3 hot chocolate bombs.

STEP 4

Spray each cocoa bomb lightly with the edible purple glitter spray. Let set for a minute or two, and do not touch the area with glitter once sprayed, or it will wipe off the hot chocolate bomb.

STEP 5

Place a 1/4 cup of bright pink candy melts in the microwave, and repeat step 1 to fully melt them. Once smooth and creamy, drape a sandwich bag over your hand, and fill it with the melt. Cut a very small tip in the corner of the bag with scissors. This is a nice quick and easy piping bag. Pipe flower shaped petals on the top of the hot chocolate bombs. Immediately add gold and white sprinkles before it sets. Pipe additional pink melts in the center of the flower petals, and then add 3 green leaf sprinkles, and 3 of the rainbow daisy decorations. Let set for 2-3 minutes.

STEP 6 – Enjoying Hot Chocolate Bombs

When you’re ready to enjoy your hot chocolate bomb, heat approximately 8oz of milk in the microwave, or on the stovetop. Place your cocoa bomb in a mug, and slowly pour the milk over it. Stir lightly to open the bomb and see the hot chocolate bomb explode. Continue stirring until the candy melts and chocolate mix have melted, and enjoy your spring flowers hot chocolate bombs!
