How to Make Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs

Making snowman hot cocoa bombs is super easy! Melting the chocolate rims to stick the snowman halves together is the trickiest part. You got this! Follow our step-by-step instructions for snowmen that look amazing.

Ingredients for Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs

White Candy Melts. I used sweet tooth fairy ones.

Orange Candy Melt Chips. To make the nose.

Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate Mix. Get the canister, not the packets as you will be measuring by the tablespoon.

Marshmallows. The little ones.

Black Confetti Sprinkles. For the mouth and eyes.

Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs Ingredients

Step-By-Step Instructions

  1. Melt white candy melts to the package directions in the microwave.
  2. Add white candy melts to the dome mold and spread with the back of a spoon. Do this in one thin layer to coat then place in freezer for 10 minutes. 
  3. Take it back out and coat only where you can see through the mold. If you cannot see through the mold you do not need to add more. You want the bomb to stay together but not be too thick. If you add more to the thin spots, be sure to place them back in the freezer for another 10 minutes.
  4. Remove and slowly pop out each side of the bombs from the mold.
  5. Place on a plate.
  6. Heat a frying pan to low heat. 
  7. Place one side of the bomb rim down onto the frying pan. This will lightly melt and even out the edges. 
  8. Quickly add about 2 tablespoons cocoa mix to the bomb and marshmallows. 
  9. Melt the other side of the bomb’s rim and then place even with the other side. This will seal them together evenly. Do not add hot chocolate to the outside as it will just melt the bomb.
  10. Dip a brush in candy melts and place a little on the back of the black confetti sprinkles. 
  11. Place the sprinkles in a half-moon shape for the mouth and for the eyes. This will dry and stick. 
  12. Microwave the orange candy melts. 
  13. With a brush, brush on the orange in the shape of a carrot.
  14. Let dry. Pour hot milk over the snowman to dissolve the snowman hot chocolate bomb. Stir well.

Tips for Making the Best Snowman Hot Cocoa Bombs

Besides white candy melts, you can also use white chocolate chips, or white chocolate melting wafers. These three ingredients are basically interchangeable.

Do not spread the white chocolate too thickly on the cocoa bomb molds. This will result in super thick chocolate that won’t melt and create that magical moment.

Use a candy brush or piping bag to form the nose. You can find these items in the candy-making section of your local craft store.

FAQ

How do I melt white candy melts?

You can follow the package instructions or do the following. Microwave for thirty seconds. Remove and stir. Microwave again for ten-fifteen seconds. Remove and stir. Repeat ten-second increments in the microwave, stirring between each, until the candy melts are fully melted.

Why did my candy melts get clumpy in the microwave?

This can happen for one or two reasons. Either you have old candy melts that have passed the expiration date, or you have cooked the candy melts for too long and burned them. If you are following the package directions and still got this result, it was probably time to replace the package.

Can I use a different hot chocolate mix for the snowman hot chocolate bombs?

You can use any hot chocolate mix you like. I recommend buying one in a canister for easy measuring. You can also make homemade hot chocolate mix if you prefer.

I think I've told you this before, but I think hot chocolate bombs are here to stay. They give my kids SO much joy. We've never really tried to make deluxe ones like this.
