  • 1 cup red candy melts
  • 1 cup white candy melts
  • 1 cup blue candy melts
  • 6 tablespoons white hot chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons milk hot chocolate
  • White mini baking chips in different colors
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Sprinkles: white blue and red


  • Add candy melts to three, small, microwave safe bowls. Melt in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between until fully melted. This will take between 60-90 seconds.
  • Spoon about ½ tablespoon of each color into the bottom of each half-sphere mold. You will make 12 half-spheres.
  • Using the back of a spoon, gently swirl the colors together for a marble effect, don't fully combine them. Carefully, spread the melted chocolate to the sides of each mold. Freeze for about 10 minutes or until hardened.
  • Gently remove from the hardened half-spheres from the silicone molds. In 6 of them, spoon 1 tablespoon of each of the hot chocolate mix, add baking chips and mini marshmallows..
  • Add a bit og MELTED candy melts to the edges of the 6 bottom half-spheres and cover with the top spheres. Run a clean finger around the edge to remove any extra candy melt and smooth the edge.
  • Drizzle melted white chocolate on top and garnish immediately with sprinkles.
  • Freeze for 10 minutes or refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, place a cocoa bomb into a mug. Pour hot milk oveer it. Once the shell melts, stir with a spoon to fully combine. Serve and enjoy!
