How to make this Fun M&M Hot Chocolate Bomb Tutorial
While the full printable recipe can be found below, here are a few shortened directions that can be a huge help. Make certain that you melt the chocolate enough so that it’s thick in the mold and goes up the sides of the mold, too.
The reason for doing this is because you are going to be making a sphere or chocolate to connect together so you need to have the chocolate high enough to form a connection.
Don’t try to rush the process of putting the molds in the freezer, either. They have to be frozen and ready before you can move forward.
Once done, you can remove and start to add in your fillings. This recipe is pretty simple but some get pretty elaborate with the additions! You can totally change them up each time as well and create new flavors and tastes with ease.
The other big thing to remember is that you’re going to want to seal together the chocolate spheres so that they hold in all the ingredients. This may sound hard, but it’s not. Again, just follow the printable directions below and you won’t have any issues.
Don’t forget to add the M&M’s on the outside of the cocoa bombs. They really add a fun element ad make them look so tasty!
How to use hot cocoa bombs
Once you have the hot cocoa bombs done and ready, it’s time to put them to good use and get them in your tummy! All you have to do is put the cocoa bomb in your favorite mug and pour about 6 ounces of hot milk over the top.
The hot milk is going to start to melt away the chocolate and that will release the inside cocoa mix and ingredients. All you then have to do is stir and sip!
Now that you know how simple this recipe can be, it’s time for you to make your very own at home! The kids are going to love the fact that you’re creative and ready to make this fun recipe!
