Tips to Make Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs
- To make make melted snowman hot cocoa bombs, you need to plan on using melting candy discs. White chocolate is delicious, but candy melts are more smooth and they don’t freeze up nearly as fast, so you have a lot longer time to work.
- My favorite part about making homemade hot chocolate bombs is adding all the decorations – I mean, a cup of homemade hot cocoa is fantastic, but the drizzle and sprinkles are so fun! Grab some cute snowman sprinkles to make it look like a snowman and you’r e ready to go!
- To use your hot cocoa bombs, put your hot cocoa bomb in the mug, then pour hot milk over it. Once your milk is in the cup, the hot cocoa bomb is going to float up, then “pop”!
How Do I Make Snowman Hot Cocoa Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 2 cups White Candy Melts
- 2 cups Hot Chocolate Mix
- 2 cups Mini Marshmallows
- Snowman Sprinkles
- Gold Glitter Writing Icing
- Melt your white candy melts per the directions on the package, then place a generous 1 tbsp of the melted candy into one half of a 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, 1 tsp snowman 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 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 gold writing icing over the hot cocoa bombs, followed immediately by sprinkling with the snowman 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!
