Simple Tips for Making this Mermaid Hot Chocolate Bombs Recipe
Making hot chocolate bombs isn’t hard to do but there are a few tips to keep in mind that can make this recipe a lot easier!
When you’re melting the chocolate, make certain that you stop and stir in 30-second intervals. This will make it melt faster and take away the chances of it getting too hot and burning.
Once the chocolate is melted, you need to be certain that you’re adding a good layer to the mold and have the melted chocolate covering the sides of the mold as well as the bottom of the mold as well.
The other big tip to keep in mind is that you want to make certain that you seal it really well so that nothing leaks out of the cocoa bomb until you’re ready for it, too.
(But in all reality, if it does – just pour on the milk and stir because in the end…you’re going to be drinking it anyway and life is too short to stress!)
The other big tip to keep in mind is to have fun with the sprinkles. We were able to find some really cool mermaid sprinkles out and about but if you can’t, just find some that are brightly colored and have fun with it. I’ve seen some really cool shimmering sprinkles that would be an awesome addition as well!
To use these hot cocoa bombs just put in the bottom of a mug and pour in 6 ounces of hot milk! Stir and enjoy!
How do you store hot cocoa bombs?
If you’re not ready to eat your hot cocoa bombs quite yet, you can always add them to a sealed container and store them until you are ready to eat them.
There is no rush to consume them but it will be hard not to!
