I bet I thought I was going to make one as well. I’m late to this hot chocolate bombs trend, I admit. That said, I’m no slave to trends. I just like what I like. And if hot chocolate bombs are wrong, I don’t want to be right. How can they go out of style when they’re so dang cool? So I thought it would be perfect to make them for St. Patrick’s Day. We’re on year two of a totally weird March, and not to mention that March is totally weird anyway with its blustery winds and occasional warm days. Warm up with a hot chocolate bomb or two! They’re easy and fun to make, and I’m happy to share this easy recipe. You can’t go wrong with mini marshmallows.
St. Patrick’s Day Hot Chocolate Bombs:
What You Need:
12oz Bag White Candy Melts
1 Tbsp Hot Chocolate Per Bomb
St. Patrick’s Day Sprinkles
6 Sphere Silicon Mold
What You Do:
1 – Pour candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melts have fully melted.
2 – Spread the candy melts up the sides of the mold until every bit of the mold is covered.
3 – Let the molds sit for about 5 minutes and re-spread any of the candy melts that sank to the bottom of the molds.
4 – Place the molds in the refrigerator for about 30-45 minutes.
5 – Once set, carefully remove the candy melt spheres from the mold.
6 – Fill the half of the spheres with the hot cocoa powder, sprinkles, and marshmallows.
7 – Place a glass plate in the microwave for one minute.
8 – Remove the plate and immediately place each chocolate sphere on the hot place to heat the edges.
9 – Place each heated sphere on each filled sphere. You can use the tip of your finger to smooth the melted candy around the seam.
10 – Take the icing and draw lines back and forth on the top of your sphere.
11 – Place the sprinkles on the hot chocolate bomb using the icing as glue.
