Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore how easy it is to make our new favorite treat: hot cocoa bombs.

But these Minnie hot cocoa bombs? Wow. Just wow.
They’re super understated and not overly decorated (like I’ve been trying out, with other hot cocoa bombs recipes) but they still manage to capture everything about our favorite bow-wearing mouse. If you’re ready to make a tasty and fun Minnie hot chocolate bomb, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Minnie Mouse Hot Cocoa Bombs
- Making Minnie hot cocoa bombs is very easy, all you need is a mold like this one here, some chocolate and a few marshmallows, right? No. It’s easy, but not that easy. You have to use melting candy discs. I’m not saying that the candy discs better than chocolate chips, but they do melt more smoothly, the candy melts don’t freeze up as fast and you can buy them pre-colored if you want different colors. So, to make your Minnie hot chocolate bombs, grab some candy melts like these and some bows like these, while you’re at it.
- When you’re ready to use your Minnie Mouse hot cocoa bombs, all you need to do is heat about 2 cups of milk then pour that over your hot cocoa bomb inside your favorite mug. The hot cocoa bombs will float and “explode”.
- Wanna know the trick to making the Minnie Mouse ears? It’s easy! Just gently melt the side of a chocolate melting candy and stick it on your hot cocoa bomb. So simple, it’s crazy.
How Do I Make this Minnie Hot Cocoa Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Set aside 12 chocolate melting discs for use at the end of the recipe.
- Melt your chocolate candy melts per the directions on the package, then place a generous 1 tbsp of the melted candy into one mold and, using the rounded bottom of your tablespoon measure, 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 and 6-8 mini marshmallows (as many as you can fit inside 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 a chocolate bomb half onto one of the filled bomb halves with the flat-side-down.
- Press this hot cocoa bomb half onto the top of a filled half-sphere.
- 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.
- Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the hot cocoa bombs.
- Press one side of the melting chocolate discs (you put them aside in the first step) onto the warm plate until the chocolate begins to melt, then immediately press this into the side top of the hot cocoa bomb. Repeat with a second melting disc on the opposite side of the hot cocoa bomb.
- Add a dab of chocolate to the back of your bow icing decoration, then press this into the space between the ears.
- 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!
