Hot Chocolate Mix – You can use a store-bought variety or make it yourself and save some money.

Food Coloring – Green is needed for decorating the bombs.

Holiday Hot cocoa Bombs for St. Patrick's day

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups white candy melts or almond bark
  • 1/2 cup green candy melts
  • 1 packet hot chocolate mix
  • Marshmallows (large cut in half or mini)

Instructions

    1. Place a plate in the freezer

    2. Melt the green candy melts in a microwaveable bowl on high for 30 seconds. Continue to warm up chocolate in 30 second intervals stirring between each time until just melted.
    This may take 2-4 times.

    2, When you stir the chocolate and see it's mostly melted, heat for 15 seconds and stir until all lumps are gone and the chocolate is smooth. Repeat the process with the white melts or chiips.
    Use a spoon “paint” the green chocolate randomly into the cavities and place into the freezer.

    3. Melt the white candy melts following the instructions above.
    Remove molds from freezer and drop a dollop of white chooclate into the first cavity of the silicon mold. Use the back of the spoon to coat the mold completely. Wipe away any excess chocolate. Repeat for each cavity.

    4. Freeze for 15-20 mins.

    5. Remove plate and mold from the freezer.
    Carefully remove each half from the mold and set them on the now cold plate (this keeps them
    from melting)

    6 Spoon in 2 teaspoons of cocoa mix (not an entire packet).
    Add mini marshmallows
    Connect the two ends of the heart together by either melting chocolate to serve as a glue
    (piping bag method) or place the top half onto a heated plate to lightly melt the edges and stick
    them together.

    7. Place in the freezer while you melt the green wafers. Place melted chocolate into a piping bag. Remove bombs from the freezer and pipe green decor on the bombs. Return to freezer until ready to use.

Tips for Making St. Patrick’s Day Hot Cocoa Bombs

  • Freezing a plate will help make sure your cocoa bombs don’t melt once you unmold them.
  • Do not overheat the chocolate as it can and will burn.
  • When coating the sides pay careful attention to the rim as the chocolate will need to be able to
    be “glued” together. If you don’t fully coat the mold, the two pieces won’t fit.
    Ways to connect your cocoa bomb:
    1. Hot Plate Method: Place a plate in the microwave for 2 minutes and remove. The plate
    will hold the heat without the risk of burning yourself.
    2. Pipe melted chocolate: Use leftover melted chocolate. Add to a piping bag or small
    ziploc bag. Cut a small hole at the end of the piping bag (or one corner of the ziploc
    bag). Squeeze chocolate around the rim of the bottom sphere and simply place the
    other sphere on top. Using your finger, smooth the chocolate out. (leave as is or add
    sprinkles or crushed candies)
    If you use the piped chocolate method just remember if the chocolate is too hot it will burn a
    hole into your bomb, so watch your temperature.
  • If you do not bring the chocolate all the way up the cavity your two halves will not
    connect. Make sure to take extra care to bring the melted chocolate all the way up all the
    sides. You should not be able to see the color of the inside of the molds, if you can your bomb
    wont be as sturdy.
  • If cocoa bombs are being made in advance they can be frozen and stored.
  • Body heats melts chocolate quickly, use gloves or touch the bombs as little as possible once
    they are formed in the molds.
  • Remember whatever you put inside the cocoa bomb will end up in your hot chocolate. All candy
    and sprinkles do not melt. While it is nice for presentation, be selective on what you put inside
    of your hot cocoa bombs. Some sprinkles may be a choking hazard to small children.
  • To make the clover on the outside of the bomb in lieu of using sprinkles, create hearts with the
    chocolate. All 2-3 mins to harden between adding hearts next to one another to make the clover
