How to Make Unicorn Hot Chocolate Bombs
Add the white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30-second intervals until all is melted.
Add some melted chocolate into the molds using a spoon.
Evenly coat the inside of the molds with the melted chocolate.
Put the molds into the fridge for about 10-15 minutes to harden.
Apply a second coat of chocolate into the molds and place it back into the fridge for another 10-15 minutes.
Gently begin removing the chocolate from the molds by carefully peeling the sides off.
Place a small glass plate into the microwave and heat for 30-45 seconds and place it aside.
Place the chocolate shell onto the hot plate to smooth the edges, you will do this for only half of the shells.
Add a tablespoon of the hot chocolate mix, assorted unicorn sprinkles, a pinch of edible glitter, and a few marshmallows into half of the shells.
Melt to smooth the edges of the other half of the chocolate shells and quickly place them on top of the filled shells.
Use one of your fingers to wipe the edges to smooth out the chocolate.
Place your pink and teal candy melts into 2 separate microwave-safe bowls and one at a time, melt in the microwave in 30-second increments until they are completely melted.
Add some of the pink and teal chocolate over each cocoa bomb and quickly add your unicorn candies and sprinkles.
If you want, I love adding some melted chocolate around the edge of my mug, then adding some more sprinkles for more decoration.
Pour some hot milk over top of 1 or 2 cocoa bombs in your favorite mug.
Watch as the contents on the inside spill out and fill your cup with magic, enjoy!
How Hot Does Milk Need to Be to Melt Cocoa Bombs?
Milk does not boil so it normally is hard to tell how hot it is. You will want to heat it until it begins to steam. About 2 to 3 minutes in the microwave should work. The chocolate needs very hot milk otherwise it will not melt and pop open.
