A Magical Harry Potter Hot Chocolate Bomb recipe for kids. The perfect treat for curling up and reading the books or watching the movies.
Heat the white candy melts in a medium 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.
Spoon approximately a tablespoon of the melted candy wafers into the molds. Thoroughly coat the inside of the mold with a small silicone spatula, or the back of a spoon.
Place the filled mold in the refrigerator for 3-5 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.
Warm a small plate in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Place a white 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 cocoa mix, about 10-12 miniature marshmallows, and approximately a teaspoon of sprinkles.
Place another sphere on the plate and twist, and once the edges are slightly melted, place it on top of the filled sphere. Twist slightly to help meld them together.
Repeat to make 3 hot chocolate bombs.
Add 1 black candy melt to the red candy melts bowl, in order to turn the red a slightly darker shade. Place the ¼ c of red candy melts in the microwave, and repeat step 1 to fully melt.
Place the ¼ c of yellow candy melts in the microwave next, and repeat the melting process.
Once both the red and yellow are both smooth/creamy, drape a sandwich bag over your hand, and fill with the melted red wafers. Repeat with a second bag and the yellow wafers.
Cut just a small bit off the corner to create a small hole.
Pipe red lines first, and then yellow lines on the top of the hot cocoa bombs. Immediately add sprinkles. Let set for 2-3 minutes.
While the cocoa bombs are setting, place a piece of parchment paper over the glasses/lightning bolt template. Trace the lightning bolt template with the melted yellow candy melts in the bag. Ensure you make the lightning bolt thick, or they will break when handling them.
While the lightning bolts are setting, heat the ¼ c black candy melts in the microwave, and repeat step 1 to fully melt. Drape the last sandwich bag over your hand, and fill with the melted black candy.
Cut a very small tip of the bag, and trace the eyeglasses template with the black candy. Again, be sure to make the lines thick, so that they won’t break when handling. Outline the lightning bolts with the black candy also.
Place the parchment paper on a flat surface (cutting board, serving platter, baking sheet), and place in the freezer to set for 3-5 minutes.
Once the eyeglasses and lightning bolt have set, remove them from the freezer.
Warm the left over red candy melts bowl in the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir well, and using a toothpick, add a small amount of the red melted candy to the back of one of the eyeglasses, and adhere it on one of the hot chocolate bombs.
Next, add a small amount of the red melted candy to the back of a lightning bolt, and place it above the eyeglasses on the cocoa bomb.
Repeat this process until all three cocoa bombs have eyeglasses and lightning bolts. Let set for 2-3 minutes.
