Tuesday Treats & Titles: Melting Snowmen Bombs

Evidently, melting hot cocoa bombs are a thing. Who knew?!? I tumbled across the recipe and had to agree with the person who shared the recipe. This is what they had to say on the matter:

This melting snowman hot chocolate bomb is a cute way to enjoy a mug of hot cocoa. They are fun to make, and they make great gifts. Kids and adults both love these easy to make hot cocoa bombs. It’s a hollow sphere filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. The combination of milk chocolate powder and white chocolate is delicious. The creator used a 2.5 inch sphere mold to make them. She used edible markers to make a cute snowman face on the bomb. You can leave them plain or make another design. Polar bears would be cute! 

Recipe details
Yield: 4 Bombs
Time spent
Prep time: 10 Minutes|Cook time: 20 Minutes|Total time: 30 min

Ingredients
2 cups white chocolate chips or wafers
1 cup hot chocolate mix
1 cup mini marshmallows

Instructions
1. To start, melt your chocolate using your preferred method. Be sure to stir often for a consistent and even melts

2. Once the chocolate is melted, use a silicone brush to brush it onto the sides, as well as the bottom, of your mold. The chocolate should be fairly thin but still be sure to cover the entire mold. Then, place the mold into the freezer for about five or ten minutes.

3. Now, place a pan on the stove and heat to a low temperature. Carefully remove one of your chocolate spheres and place it on the pan to smoothen out the bottom. This step must be done quick as to not melt the entirety of the chocolate.

4. From here, you will want to fill up one of the spheres with the mix and marshmallows. If you need to you can mound up the marshmallows.

5. Warm the other half of the sphere as to melt the chocolate. Now gently press on the half that you previously filled, holding carefully yet firmly for about twenty seconds. Place in the freezer for five minutes.

6. Use edible markers to draw on a snowman face. 

To use, place in a mug. Then add warm milk or water. The chocolate melts and releases the hot cocoa mix. Stir and enjoy! CLICK HERE to check out all the details. Check out the picture for the process. –>

Since we’re coming up on Christmas, I thought I’d share this for those creative types out there. I considered ordering the silicone molds to make these because I thought they were so cute. That said, I’m lazy. And cheap. However, believe it or not, one of my favorite former Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers–AND the heroine of THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSITION–learned to make these. And believe me, if Quinn can do it, just about anyone can. Now she makes them for gifts and stocking stuffers. Since she inherited such a huge family when she hooked up with Deacon Tate, it was sink or swim. You can read their story by clicking on the cover or the title. The link takes you to the Harlequin page. You can order the book from there or click on the link to your favorite on-line store. Pssst. I get a little more royalty when my readers by direct from HQN, so that’s a little extra present to me. 😉

What do you think? Fun or too much trouble?
