Ingredients

  • 8 oz white candy melts
  • 1 oz red candy melts
  • 6 tbsp hot cocoa powder
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows
  • Green sprinkles
  • Silicone semi-sphere mold
  • Large plate, small plate, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spoon or pastry brush, pastry bag or ziplock bag, small microwave safe bowls for melting candy

Instructions

Put a large plate into the freezer.

Pour the white candy melts into a bowl and heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each heat session until the candy is fully melted.

Add a small spoon full of melted candy to all of the mold cavities, then coat the melted candy around the mold, making sure to get all the way up the sides.


Place candy-coated mold into the freezer for 5 minutes.

Repeat steps 4 and 5, then transfer the unused melted candy to pastry or ziplock bag.

Remove the chilled plate and candy-coated mold from the freezer. Carefully remove
each candy-coated sphere from the mold and place it on the chilled plate.

Heat the small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Put one half-sphere upside down on the heated plate to slightly melt the candy-coated edge.

Fill it with 1 tablespoon cocoa mix, and a few mini marshmallows.

Repeat step 9 with another half sphere and adhere the two together. The melted candy should fuse them together nicely, but if not, just use your finger to add a little chocolate around the seam.

Reheat the bagged candy if needed, then snip off the end and drizzle candy over each cocoa bomb, and add sprinkles.

To serve, place the cocoa bomb into a mug, then pour 6 ounces of hot water or milk over the chocolate bomb. Stir well and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy these Cinco de Mayo hot cocoa bombs. They are so fun. Soon, you will be as addicted to them as I am!
