Silicone half sphere mold
1/2cupbright green candy melts
1/2cupdark green candy melts
1/2cupwhite candy melts
1cuplucky charms marshmallows
6Tbsphot chocolate powder
Gold sanding sugar, optional
In three separate, small sized, microwave safe bowls, melt bright green, dark green and white candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
Once melted, spoon some of each candy melt color into each half sphere mold, enough to fill the mold ⅓ full and spread it around the mold as evenly as possible.
If you would like to be extra creative and fun with it, alternately mix and add candy melt colors then use your spoon to lightly swirl the colors together to create a marbled effect. Be sure there is enough candy melt in each mold to thickly cover all sides so there are no thin spots.
Let set until hardened, about 10 minutes. If the top edge of the sphere feels thin or delicate, spread just a little more of the candy melt to reinforce it and let set until hardened.
Gently remove the spheres from the mold. In 6 of the sphere halves, place 1Tbsp of hot chocolate powder, several lucky charms marshmallows and some gold sanding sugar.
Warm a small plate in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Place the opposing, empty half of the sphere on the plate for 3-5 seconds to let the edges melt.
Match the empty half with the filled half and gently press them together. Run a clean finger along the seam to smooth it out. If the halves don’t stay together, you can warm a metal butter knife by running it under hot water then run the warm knife over the edge of the filled half while the empty half is on the plate.
Once all of the hot cocoa bombs are together, serve and enjoy or package and give away!
To make hot cocoa, simply warm 6 oz of milk and place hot cocoa bomb into a mug with warmed milk and stir! For extra pizzazz, sprinkle extra marshmallows on top of prepared hot cocoa and sprinkle with more sanding sugar!
