Chocolate or hot chocolate bombs are all the rage right now. I mean, who doesn’t love hot chocolate or hot cocoa? And it is so neat watching chocolate bombs or cocoa bombs in action. Especially Valentine’s hot chocolate bombs.
Nothing beats a good cup of hot chocolate on a cool day, especially a winter’s or snowy day.
Valentine’s Day is a great time to make Valentine’s hot cocoa bombs. Either for your sweetheart or with the kids. And I think adults love hot chocolate bombs as much as kids do.
Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bombs
- 12oz Bag White Candy Melts
- 1 Tbsp Hot Chocolate Per Bomb
- Mini Marshmallows
- White icing
- Valentine’s Sprinkles (Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s)
- 6 Sphere Silicone Mold
- Pour candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melts have fully melted.
- Spread the candy melts up the sides of the mold until every bit of the mold is covered.
- Let the molds sit for about 5 minutes & re-spread any of the candy melts that sank to the bottom of the molds.
- Place the molds in the refrigerator for about 30-45 minutes.
- Once set, carefully remove the candy melt spheres from the mold.
- Fill half of the spheres with the hot cocoa powder, sprinkles& marshmallows.
- Place a glass plate in the microwave for one minute.
- Remove the plate and immediately place each chocolate sphere on the hot plate to heat the edges.
- Place each heated sphere on each filled sphere. You can use the tip of your finger to smooth the melted candy around the seam.
- Take the icing and draw lines back and forth on the top of your sphere.
- Sprinkle away using the icing as glue.
