Instructions For Making Pink Pearl Hot Chocolate Bombs

Pour the candy melts into a microwave safe bowl.

Heat the candy melts for 30 seconds or until they have fully melted.

Use the melted chocolate to coat the inside of the silicone candy mold, making sure that entire inner surface is covered.

Let the molds sit 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 the molds have set, carefully remove the candy melt spheres from the mold and place them onto a plate.

Fill half of the spheres with the hot cocoa powder & marshmallows.

Place a microwave safe plate in the microwave for one minute. If you don’t want to use a plate you can also use a small pan heated to very low.

Remove the plate and immediately place each empty sphere on the hot plate to heat the chocolate 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. Wearing food safe gloves helps decrease the chances of leaving fingerprints on the chocolate, as well as the likelihood of melting.

If you find yourself having a really hard time closing the two spheres you can smooth a little extra melted chocolate along the seam, most of which would be covered when you added sprinkles.

Use the cookie icing to draw lines back and forth on top of the bomb. The icing will act as a glue to hold the pearls you are going to put on.

Scatter the pearls onto the bomb.

Now you’re ready to use the hot chocolate bomb or store it.

When you’re ready to enjoy your hot cocoa bomb, heat 8 oz of water (or milk for richer flavor) in the microwave or on the stovetop.

Place one cocoa bomb into a large mug, and slowly pour the hot water (or steamed milk) over it.

The bomb will start to open. Stir lightly to continue opening the bomb, stirring until the chocolate and sprinkles have melted.

Enjoy!

Common Questions About Hot Chocolate Bombs

What kind of mold do I need to use to make hot cocoa bombs?

Silicone molds are the easiest type of molds to use because they are so flexible and easy to work with.

Where do I buy the molds to make hot cocoa bombs?

There are many silicone molds available for purchase on Amazon. You can also check your local craft store, such as Michael’s. If you have a local specialty candy or chocolate store you may also find the molds available for purchase there.

What kind of mugs do I serve hot cocoa bombs in?

For hot cocoa bombs such as these that have been made using a larger sphere, you will want to use an oversized mug. If you are making hot cocoa bombs using smaller spheres under 2 inches you may be able to use a regular size mug.
