- 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
- 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 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 your hot cocoa bomb into a mug, then pour 6 ounces of hot water or milk over the cocoa bomb. Stir well and enjoy!
