Tips to Make Hot Cocoa Bombs with Pumpkin Spice
- To make make hot cocoa bombs with pumpkin spice SUPER easy, you definitely should use melting chocolate discs. They just melt more smoothly and don’t freeze up as fast, so you’ve got a longer time to work with them. So, to make your pumpkin spice hot chocolate bombs, grab some orange candy melts like these and some brown ones, then some yellow ones for your drizzle. Then you won’t even have to worry about having to color them.
- I thing my favorite part about hot chocolate bombs is the decorations – I mean, making hot cocoa is great and these taste ah-mazing, but the drizzle and sprinkles are everything. Grab the cute pumpkin and fall sprinkle mix I used here to get my exact look.
- To use your hot cocoa bombs, you’ll want to heat your milk and pour it over the hot cocoa bomb in the mug. It’s going to float up, then “pop” and that’s so much more fun than any other hot cocoa you can make!
How Do I Make Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Melt your orange candy melts per the directions on the package, then place 1 tbsp melted candy into one half of a sphere mold and, with the bottom of your measuring spoon, gently form the candy up, coating the sides of the mold, keeping the candy thick but even. Repeat coating all 12 half-sphere molds. Put the coated half-sphere 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 pumpkin spice sprinkles, ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice, 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 bit of chocolate on your finger, rub the seam to connect the two halves more securely. Repeat with all of the hot cocoa bombs.
- Melt the yellow and chocolate candy melts, then drizzle each of them over the hot cocoa bombs, followed immediately by sprinkling with the pumpkin spice 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!
