Strawberry Hot Cocoa Bombs
How to Make Strawberry Hot Chocolate Bombs
- 8 oz Strawberry flavored Candy Melts
- 2 oz white vanilla flavored candy melts
- 6 tbsp Strawberry Nesquik powdered drink mix
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- Red, pink and white nonpareils
- Semi sphere mold
- Microwave safe bowl, spoon or large pastry brush, pastry bag or ziplock bag, large plate, small plate, tablespoon
You will also need bath bomb molds or cake pop molds and, if using bath bomb molds, I found it best to hold them steady in a cupcake tin.
Place a large plate into the freezer.
Pour strawberry candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 30 second intervals, until fully melted. Stairwell between each heating session.
Using a spoon or large pastry brush, coat each of the mold cavities with the melted strawberry candy. Place into the freezer for 5 minutes, and repeat to add another coat of melted candy, then chill for an additional 5 minutes.
Remove the plate and candy coated mold from the freezer. Remove candy coated half spheres from mold and place onto the chilled plate.
Heat the small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Place one candy coated half sphere upside down on the heated plate and move around to slightly melt the rim. Add 1 tablespoon Strawberry Nesquik and 6-8 marshmallows.
Place another candy coated half sphere upside down on the plate and move around to melt the rim, rubbing it around in the excess candy on the plate.
Stick that half sphere on top of the other, and very gently secure the two together. *They should go together no problem, but if you do have an issue, simply rub a little extra melted candy along the seam where there is a gap.
Place white candy melts into a pastry bag or ziplock bag and heat in 30 second increments until fully melted, massaging the bag between each heat session.
Once melted, cut off the tip of the bag and drizzle melted candy on top of the bomb in a back and forth motion.
To use, place bomb in mug and pour 6 oz of hot milk over it, Stir and enjoy!
