Tips to Make Harry Potter Hot Chocolate Bombs
- If you’re new to making your own DIY hot cocoa bombs, first read the tips and tricks on this hot cocoa bombs recipe page. It’s yummy info!
- I made these epic Wizarding World hot cocoa bombs with black melting chocolate like this. Sure, you can try to make black chocolate from white chocolate chips, but it’s going to be difficult, lumpy and grey – and there’s no need for that frustration. Black candy melts for the win!
- Besides the black chocolate, what really sets off your Harry Potter hot cocoa bombs is, of course, that beautiful picturesque Hedwig sitting on top. Mine were an icing decoration I found on Etsy that are, sadly, sold out. But there are some epic ones available that are even better than the ones I found here.
- Add your little sparks of magic stars, sorting hats, Nimbus 2000 and other bright spots of color with this awesome sprinkle mix here.
- If this is your first introduction to hot cocoa bombs, just accio a mug and put your bomb inside. Then alohamora your milk and heat up enough to fill your mug. Once the milk is piping hot, pour it (carefully – it’s hot, Potter) over the cocoa bomb inside your mug and watch the magic happen!
How Do I Make this Harry Potter Hot Cocoa Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Place the black candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave per the directions on the package, or per your preferred melting method. Stir well to make sure the candy melts are completely melted and smooth. For a shiny finish on those cocoa bombs, keep stirring until the chocolate is shiny (about 2-3 minutes).
- Place about 2 tbsp of the melted chocolate into one mold cavity and, using the bottom of a spoon or your measuring spoon, move the melted candy up and around the sides of the mold, keeping it thick and even all the way around. Repeat with 12 half-sphere molds. Once you've coated all of the bomb molds, place the molds into your freezer on a flat surface for about 5 minutes to set.
- Place the rest of your unused melted chocolate into a piping bag or zipper bag for use later as a drizzle.
- After the chocolate has set in the molds, remove the bomb molds from the freezer and carefully peel the silicone away from the chocolate.
- Add about 1 tbsp of the hot chocolate mix and 5-6 of the marshmallows along 1 tbsp sprinkles mix into six of the chocolate cups. Warm-up a plate in the microwave until the center of the plate is warm to the touch.
- Press the open side of an empty chocolate cup onto the middle of the heated plate for about 10 seconds in order to gently melt the rim. Immediately place this chocolate cup on top of a filled cup. This will close the cocoa bomb - but if needed, you can use your reserved melted chocolate to help seal them. Repeat with all of the chocolate cups.
- With the chocolate you set aside in the piping bag earlier, drizzle it over the closed hot cocoa bombs, then immediately top with the sprinkles mix. Lightly press the sprinkles into the drizzle of chocolate to make sure they won't fall off.
- Add a dab of the remaining melted chocolate onto the back of an owl decoration piece and place the owl on top of a hot cocoa bomb. Repeat with the remaining hot cocoa bombs.
- Place the hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes to get them to set, 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!
