Tips to Make Mickey Christmas Hot Cocoa Bombs
- Making Mickey Christmas hot cocoa bombs is very easy, but there’s a trick to keeping it that way. You have to use melting chocolate discs. I’m not saying they’re better than chocolate, but they do melt more smoothly, don’t freeze up as fast and you can buy them pre-colored so you don’t have to deal with that mess. So, to make your Christmas Mickey hot chocolate bombs, grab some red candy melts like these and some white ones for your drizzle.
- Beyond having a tasty drink, I think my favorite thing about these Mickey hot chocolate bombs is the presentation – I mean, the drizzle and sprinkles are everything. Grab the cute Mickey sprinkles here to really make your Mickey hot chocolate bombs pop.
- When you’re ready to use your Mickey hot cocoa bombs, heat about 2 cups of milk then pour it over your hot cocoa bomb inside the mug. The hot cocoa bombs will float up to the top, then “explode” and watching that is so much more fun than just dumping a packet of hot cocoa in a mug and stirring it up.
How Do I Make Christmas Mickey Hot Cocoa Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Melt your red candy melts per the directions on the package, then place about 1 tbsp melted candy into one half of the sphere molds and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, gently form the candy up the sides of the mold, keeping the candy thick and even. Repeat this by coating all 12 of the half-sphere molds. Put the coated molds into the freezer for about 5 minutes to set.
- Take the molds out of the freezer and gently press on one side of the candy to loosen the grip on the mold and make the candy slide out.
- To 6 of the molds, add 1 tbsp hot cocoa mix, 1 tsp Mickey sprinkles and 6-8 mini marshmallows (as many as you can get in there).
- Heat a plate in the microwave until the surface is warm to the touch (about 20-30 seconds). With one of the empty bomb halves, place it open-side-down onto the plate for about 10 seconds to gently melt the rim of the chocolate sphere.
- Once warmed, press the chocolate bomb half onto one of the filled bomb halves. Then with a dab of chocolate on your finger, rub the seam between the two halves to connect the two halves securely. Repeat with all of the hot cocoa bombs.
- Melt the white candy melts, then drizzle that over the hot cocoa bombs, followed immediately by sprinkling with the Mickey sprinkles and the chocolate jimmies sprinkles.
- Place your finished hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes, then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
- To use the hot cocoa bombs, place them in a mug and pour 2 cups hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy!
