Easy rainbow hot chocolate bomb recipe. Making hot chocolate bombs is a wonderful way to get the kids in the kitchen doing hands on learning!
Heat the white candy melts in a medium glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power. Stir well. If needed, heat 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 a little less than a tbsp of the melted candy wafers into the molds. Adjust the amount of candy melts you add to suit the size of your molds. Thoroughly coat the inside of the mold with a small silicone spatula, or the back of a small spoon. Make sure to work the candy melts right up to the edges and make them a little thicker.
Place the silicone mold in the refrigerator for 5 - 10 minutes to set.
Once set, remove 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. You can either place them on the serving tray/cookie sheet, or I placed them on a piece of parchment paper for the next steps.
Place a small plate in the microwave and heat it for approximately 20 seconds until it is just warm.
Place one of the sphere halves 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, some mini marshmallows, and approximately a tsp of rainbow sprinkles. 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. Let set for a couple of minutes.
Place the yellow candy melts in the microwave, and heat in 30 second bursts, stirring in between, until melted.
Once smooth/creamy, drape the sandwich bag over your hand, and fill with the melted wafers. Cut a very small tip of the bag with kitchen shears, and pipe a spiraling circle on the top of the cocoa bombs. Immediately add sprinkles. Let set for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!
