How to Make These Hot Cocoa Bombs

Step 1 Melting Chocolate

Using a bowl and the microwave, heat your green melting wafers in 30-second increments until your wafers have melted and become smooth.  

Step 2 Coating Silicone Molds

Once your wafers are melted you will want to coat your silicone molds, making sure that all of the sides and bottom is well coated. You can use a spoon for this process but another good option is a decorating brush made for baking.

Step 3 Set the Molds

Place the mold in the fridge and allow for the bomb halves to set up. This will take approximately 30 minutes.

Step 4 Fill the Cocoa Bombs

Once your hot cocoa bomb halves have set you can then pop them out of the molds and fill them with the hot chocolate contents. Which for this set is regular hot chocolate mix and mini dehydrated marshmallows. This amount will make 3 bombs so you will want to fill 3 with your mix and leave 3 for making the top.

Step 5 Seal the Rims

Using a plate heated by the microwave, or a pan on the stove, melt the rim of an empty green bomb half and place it on top of one of the filled sides. Allow the wafers to set. 

Step 6 Add Sprinkles

Using piping bags or a filled Ziploc bag, drizzle on your white chocolate over the top, sprinkle with your St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles and allow it to set up again.

Note: We also did a layer of green drizzle, if you want to do this you will need to allow your first color drizzle to set, drizzle the next color and then add your sprinkles.

Step 7 Add Cocoa Bombs to Hot Chocolate

To make the hot chocolate add 1 hot chocolate bomb to a mug and pour 8-10 ounces of milk over top or you can drop your bomb into a mug of hot milk. Stir until melted.

Notes

If you are using bigger molds, you will need to use more green melting wafers. This recipe amount will make 3 bombs but you will have ingredients left over to make additional ones. 

If you bomb halves don’t sit evenly together you can always take additional melting wafers and add some around the rim to get a complete seal on your hot cocoa bomb.
