Mickey Hot Cocoa Bombs

Hot cocoa bombs are super popular right now. Today I’m going to share how to incorporate your love for Mickey Mouse into a homemade hot cocoa bomb. These hot cocoa bombs aren’t super hard to make, but will require you move at a fairly quick pace at times. The effort will be worth it when you see the expressions on your loved ones face when they see them. Here’s how to make Mickey Hot Cocoa Bombs.

This tutorial makes 8-10 hot cocoa bombs.

Equipment Needed

Ingredients

  • 1x 30 oz package Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 cups hot cocoa mix
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows

Tips

Cut the silicone molds so that each sphere mold is by itself. This makes it a bit easier to control the mold when working with the melted chocolate. This suggestion makes the process a bit easier, but it is completely optional.

Use chocolate melting wafers instead of other forms of melting chocolate. They are easier to work with because they melt more smoothly and don’t freeze up as quickly.

Instructions

Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel to wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny coat on it.

Remove about 16-20 size matching pieces of the melting wafers and set aside.

Place the remaining Ghirardelli melting wafers into a heat safe bowl.

Place the bowl in the microwave for 45 second intervals. Be sure to stir the chocolate after each 45 seconds, continuing until it’s completely melted and smooth.

Use a spoon to place 1-2 tbsp of the chocolate into the mold.

Carefully swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold.

Lightly shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl.

Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes.

Remove the chilled molds from the fridge.

Gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened chocolate shell.

Carefully place the mold onto a cutting board.

Repeat the above steps with remaining molds, which should leave you with 8 half sphere molds.

Scoop some of the melted chocolate into the piping bag and cut the tip.

Now it’s time to build the hot cocoa bomb.

Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold.

Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows.

Pipe a line of the melted chocolate around the edge of the bottom shell.

Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom shell and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped chocolate to harden to the top shell.

Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells.

Place the mold back onto the cutting board.

Drizzle chocolate over the mold.

Place a small skillet over low heat.

Once the pan feels warm, place the bottom of the candy melts that you set aside.

Melt the bottom of the chocolate wafer so that it becomes a flat edge instead of round edge.

Quickly place the freshly melted edge onto the side of the cocoa bomb to create an “ear”.

Repeat the same step to create the second ear.

Allow to harden before serving.

Serve and enjoy!

I was actually going to buy some of these but they are quite pricey, making them sounds like much more fun!
Plus I love Mickey Mouse!
