What molds should I use for hot cocoa bombs?
I highly recommend these silicone molds. They are heat resistant, dishwasher safe (yes!) and made of food grade materials which is really important when making something like hot cocoa bombs and makes your life easier when you’re trying to remove the chocolate from it.
How do I store hot cocoa bombs?
The best way to store them is in an airtight container at room temperature. If you are going to give these as gifts or favors at a party, I’d recommend making them a few days ahead of time and then putting them into gift bags, etc. the night before your event!
Are hot chocolate bombs easy to make?
Yes! All you need is a cocoa mix and marshmallows, then you’re good to go. Remember to use a double boiler to melt the chocolate and make sure that they’re finely chopped so you won’t have a hard time when you’re trying to temper the chocolate to make the spheres or to use them to decorate.
Now that you know what you need and what you’ll do, let’s jump to the recipe!
- 1-12oz bag Wilton White Candy Melts
- Hot Cocoa Bomb Silicone Mold
- Scoopable Hot Cocoa Powder
- Miniature Marshmallows
- Decorating Bag
1. Place 12 ounces of candy melts in a microwave safe bowl, heat on 50% power in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
2. Use a teaspoon to scoop the chocolate into the half circles on the silicone mold, one at a time. Spreading the chocolate evenly onto the sides and bottom of mold until completely coated in melted chocolate. Do the same to all 12 half circles.
3. Place the silicone molds into the freezer for 2-3 minutes and remove.
4. Add a second layer of melted chocolate to the half circles molds, especially on the edges.
5. Freeze again for another minute and remove.
6. Carefully stretch the silicone molds to remove the half circles.
7. Turn the mold upside down and place the rounded sides in between the molds as a stand while filling.
8. Add 1 tablespoon and of hot cocoa powder to the one side and about 5 mini marshmallows.
9. Reheat the chocolate if it has hardened and add 4 tablespoons to a decorating bag.
10. Cut a small tip off the decorating bag and frost the edge of one half chocolate circle. Carefully and quickly add an empty chocolate circle on top to make a sphere and hold it in place for 15 seconds or until the chocolate has acted like glue and hardened.
11. Place onto a plate and drizzle melted chocolate on top with the decorating bag.
12. Let the chocolate harden and place in a glass of warm/hot milk, stir, and watch the bomb melt to see what’s inside or place in an empty glass and pour hot milk on top of the bomb, watching it melt, and then stir.
Knowing how to make these easy hot chocolate bombs won’t give you a hard time anymore thinking of what kind of delicious dessert to serve on a cold winter night, a special occasion, or just something to impress your guests at a party.
