3 Types of Hot Cocoa Bombs
Hot chocolate stations are fun way to gather the people you love in your home. You can add to the fun by creating these bombs filled with hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, chocolate chips, cinnamon. The flavor combination goes on and on. I was having my sister and her family over this past weekend to make Christmas gnomes and have hot chocolate. I’ve been wanting to try these bombs for a bit and this was a perfect opportunity to try them.
I made three different flavor combinations, peppermint, cinnamon chocolate, and white chocolate. I filled the bombs with hot chocolate mix, marshmallows and mini chocolate chips, with the exception of the cinnamon chocolate those bombs were filled with marshmallows and cinnamon.
White chocolate melts
Hot chocolate mix
Fill a bowl with about a 1 ½ cups of whichever melts you are doing first. Microwave the melts for 2 minutes. When the melts are nice and…lol melted, fill the silicone molds and place the molds in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
When the melts are solid pop them out of the molds and fill a bomb half with hot chocolate mix, marshmallows and mini chocolate chips. Take the other bomb half and dip it into the bowl with the melted melts. When you have a good amount of melt on the bomb, stick it onto the bomb half filled with the hot chocolate goodness. Once it is pressed together smooth the edge with a spoon or your finger. Let it sit and harden for about five minutes before you move on to the next step.
Fill a bowl with a festive variety of sprinkles. Dip the bomb in the melt (you may have to pop the melt-mixture into the microwave for about 10 seconds). Dip the bomb in the sprinkles.
When we got together with my sister and her family, both her kids and mine loved watching the hot milk melt the bombs and see the filling spring to the top of the cup. One thing we learned was to stir the bottom of your cup well, all the Christmas goodness floats down the bottom, so stir, stir, sitr.
I hope you try these hot cocoa bombs because they are fun to make and fun to do together as a family or group of friends. I also hope during this unprecedented holiday season you get inspired and still find a way to gather (small groups) in your home. Much love to you all.
