I finally decided to join the Hot Cocoa Bombs bandwagon!

These super popular and fun way to make hot cocoa are all over the internet right now and of course after trying them around Christmas time, I had to share one with all of you!

Fruity Pebbles cereal is the star, but you can also make with Cocoa Pebbles cereal too if you want an all chocolate theme!

Pebbles cereal isn't your thing? Prepare skipping the cereal steps and make some pretty and basic hot cocoa bombs instead!

These hot cocoa bombs make a great DIY gift for kids or adults and they take less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish!

Package them in these cute boxes, add some ribbon and it's all ready to go for that special someone!

What are the ingredients in this recipe?


Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs ingredients and supplies


  • white candy melts
  • orange candy melts
  • Fruity Pebbles Cereal 
  • mini marshmallows
  • hot cocoa mix


Recipe tips:


  • While handling the spheres, wearing food safe gloves will help keep them from melting, and also minimize your fingerprints on them. 
  • If your candy melts are not smooth and creamy enough, you can add a very small amount of Crisco or coconut oil to the bowl and mix well. 
  • To melt the sphere edges, you can either use heated plates, or a lightly heated frying pan. I have used both, and both are equally effective. 
  • We used this mold to make the hot cocoa bombs.

Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs

Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs

Yield: 3 bombs
Author: Hot Eats and Cool Reads
Cook time: 30 MinTotal time: 30 Min

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat 1/4 cup orange candy melts in a glass bowl in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power. 
  2. Stir well, and continue heating in 30 second intervals until the wafers are fully melted and smooth/creamy. 
  3. Place the silicone sphere mold on a flat serving tray or baking sheet
  4. Dip a small spoon into the candy melts, and drizzle back and forth all throughout each mold. You only want thin, small lines and flecks, so make sure you don’t have too much of the candy melts on your spoon. 
  5. Place in the refrigerator for 2 minutes to set.
  6. While the orange melts are setting, heat the white candy melts in the microwave following the same process in step 1. 
  7. Remove the mold from the refrigerator. 
  8. Once the white candy melts are fully melted, spoon approximately a tbsp of the melted candy wafers into the molds. 
  9. Thoroughly coat the inside of the mold with a small silicone spatula, or the back of a spoon. 
  10. Make sure to make the edges a little thicker, so that they don’t break when melding together. 
  11. If the candy is pooled at the bottom, spread again to evenly coat all sides, or your sphere will be less circular, and more flat on the bottoms from the pooled candy. 
  12. Place in the refrigerator again for 3-5 minutes to set.
  13. Once set, remove from the refrigerator, and begin slowly pulling the mold away from the spheres on the sides first, and then lightly push from the bottom to remove them. 
  14. You can either place them on the serving tray/baking sheet, or place them on a piece of parchment paper for the next steps. 
  15. Try to handle them as little as possible to avoid fingerprints, or melting. (To reduce fingerprint smudges, wear food safe gloves)
  16. Place a small plate in the microwave and heat for approximately 20 seconds. 
  17. Place a white sphere open side down onto the plate. 
  18. Twist it a little to get the edges slightly melted, and then immediately flip back over and fill with a heaping tbsp of hot cocoa mix, about 7-8 marshmallows, and approximately a tsp of Fruity Pebbles Cereal. 
  19. Place another sphere on the plate and twist, and once the edges are slightly melted, place it on top of the filled sphere. 
  20. You can twist them slightly to help meld them together. There should be a thin line of the melted candy around the seam. If there isn’t, you can use your finger or the back of a spoon to add additional to the seam. 
  21. Immediately dip the seam into Fruity Pebbles Cereal. 
  22. Repeat this process to make 3 hot cocoa bombs.
  23. Place the remaining ¼ c of orange candy melts in the microwave, and repeat step 1 to fully melt. 
  24. Once smooth/creamy, drizzle the orange melts on top of each cocoa bomb, and then immediately sprinkle more Fruity Pebbles Cereal on top. Let set for 2-3 minutes.
  25. When you're ready to enjoy your hot cocoa bomb, heat 8 ounces of milk in the microwave, or on the stovetop. 
  26. Place your cocoa bomb in a mug, and slowly pour the milk over it. 
  27. Stir lightly to open the bomb and see the hot cocoa explode. 
  28. Continue stirring until the candy melts and cocoa mix have melted, and enjoy!

Notes:

  • While handling the spheres, wearing food safe gloves will help keep them from melting, and also minimize your fingerprints on them. 
  • If your candy melts are not smooth and creamy enough, you can add a very small amount of Crisco or coconut oil to the bowl and mix well. 
  • To melt the sphere edges, you can either use heated plates, or a lightly heated frying pan. I have used both, and both are equally effective.
