Supplies Needed For Peeps Cocoa Bomb Recipe
- 8 oz blue candy melts
- 6 tsp hot cocoa mix powder
- Silicone bunny pan – the exact mold I used is no longer available but the following are great options
- Bunny Face Silicon Candy Mold
- Easter Bunny Silicon Mold
- Large plate, small plate, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spoon or pastry brush, pastry bag or ziplock bag, small microwave-safe bowls
How do you use a hot cocoa bomb?
This is the fun part! Just place the cocoa bomb in the bottom of your favorite mug and pour over the hot milk. You’ll see the outer chocolate milk away and then you just have to stir!
Are cocoa bombs really good gift ideas?
They are! There are a lot of people who actually aren’t going to take the time to make them themselves so they’ll be super pumped to have you do it for them. Plus, these are a unique Easter basket idea that everyone will love. This is good for kids and adults, and anyone who likes surprises that taste delicious, too.
Can you freeze hot cocoa bombs for later?
You can but there really isn’t a need to. You’ll find that these last for a long time as long as you keep them store in an airtight container. You don’t even have to keep them in the fridge!
Can you use water instead of milk for hot chocolate?
You bet! (because let’s be honest – sometimes someone in the house has drunk the last of the milk and didn’t tell anyone else they did…) There will be a bit of a taste difference as the milk helps to make the cocoa taste a bit creamier and richer, but besides that, either is going to work just fine.
Some people prefer to use water instead of milk because they like the taste or are just wanting to cut down on the fat and calories a bit, too.
Have fun gifting these Peeps Cocoa Bombs this Easter. They’re a super cute and fun way to give an Easter-themed gift to your family and friends! You can then all sit together and enjoy each and every sip, too!
- 8 ounces of blue candy melts
- 6 teaspoon of hot cocoa mix powder
- Silicone bunny pan
- Large plate, small plate, measuring cups, measuring spoons, spoon, pastry bag, microwave-safe bowls
Put a large plate in the freezer.
Add the blue candy melts to a microwave safe bowl and melt according to the package.
Put a spoonful of the melted candy into 12 of the bunny molds and smooth to coat the bottom and sides.
Pop in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove and add a 2nd coat of chocolate and put back in the freezer for another 5 minutes.
Take out the plate and molds from the freezer. Remove bunny molds and place on the plate.
Put a small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Remove and put one of the chocolate bunnies upside down to melt the edge slightly.
Put in 1 teaspoon of cocoa mix and adhere the two sides together.
Try and remove the bunnies from the bottom up so you don't break them, as they're fragile.
