Butterfly Sprinkles Hot Cocoa Bomb Recipe
- 8 oz white vanilla flavored candy melts
- 6 tbsp hot cocoa
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- Butterfly sprinkles
- Semi sphere silicone mold
- Microwave-safe bowl
- Spoon or large pastry brush
- Large plate
- Small plate
- Pastry Piping Bag or Ziploc Baggie
1. Place a large plate into the freezer.
2. Pour vanilla candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave for 30-second intervals, until fully melted. Stir well between each heating session.
3. Using a spoon or large pastry brush, coat each of the mold cavities with the melted candy. Place into the freezer for 5 minutes, and repeat to add another coat of melted candy, then chill for an additional 5 minutes.
4. Remove the plate and candy-coated mold from the freezer. Remove candy-coated half spheres from the mold and place them onto the chilled plate.
5. Heat the small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.
6. Place one candy-coated half-sphere upside down on the heated plate and move around to slightly melt the rim. Add 1 tablespoon of cocoa mix and a few mini marshmallows to the half sphere.
7. Place another candy-coated half-sphere upside down on the plate and move around to melt the rim, rubbing it around in the excess melted candy on the plate.
8. Stick that half-sphere on top of the other, and very gently secure the two together. *They should go together with no problem, but if you do have an issue, simply rub a little extra melted candy along the seam where there is a gap.
9. Pour the remaining melted candy into a pastry bag or ziplock bag and heat in 30-second increments until fully melted, massaging the bag between each heat session.
10. Once melted, cut off the tip of the bag and drizzle melted candy on top of the bomb in a back and forth motion.
11. Add sprinkles.
12. To use, place the bomb in a mug and pour 6 oz of hot milk over it, Stir and enjoy!
Enjoy your night!
