Enter a world of whimsy with our delightful Mummy Hot Cocoa Bombs recipe! As the chilly winds of autumn arrive and Halloween draws near, what better way to cozy up than with a cup of hot cocoa that’s as fun to make as it is to sip? These charming cocoa bombs, shaped like adorable mummies, are a true marvel of taste and presentation. Each bomb releases a rich cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, and a touch of spookiness when submerged in steaming milk. They’re a treat for your taste buds and a feast for the eyes.
10 ounces white chocolate candy coating, divided
4 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
12 mini marshmallows
4 mini candy bars, roughly chopped
8 mini chocolate chips
4 cups chocolate milk
01Place 8 ounces of candy coating into a microwave-safe bowl. Working in 30-second intervals, melt the candy coating in the microwave on high, stirring in between each interval. Continue until coating is completely smooth.
02Using an 8 bomb mold that is about 2.6 inches, evenly distribute melted candy coating among 8 of the molds. Using the back of a spoon, evenly spread the melted candy coating up to the edges of each mold, coating it thoroughly. When creating the shells, spreading one layer evenly in the mold then letting it set before doing another layer may help create a sturdier shell.
03Allow the shells to set, about 30 minutes.
04Once the shells are fully set, gently remove from the mold. Place 1 tablespoon of hot cocoa mix into 4 of the shells. Add 3 mini marshmallows and 1 chopped mini candy bar pieces per bomb.
05Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Place a heat-safe plate on top of the saucepan. Allow the plate to heat up slightly.
06Taking the remaining 4 shells, gently melt the flat, or open, side of each shell. Quickly attach each empty shell to the shells filled with hot cocoa mix.
07Melt the remaining 2 ounces of candy coating, following step 1 above. Using a fork, drizzle the melted candy coating over top the filled bombs. Place 2 mini chocolate chips on each of the hot cocoa bombs to make “eyes” for the mummies!
08Pour 1 cup of chocolate milk into a microwave-safe mug. Microwave on beverage setting until desired temperature is achieved. Place your hot cocoa bomb into the mug and watch it melt! Repeat this step 4 times for all 4 mugs.
