Y’all know I love a good hot cocoa bomb from my Valentine’s Day board that I did. The hot cocoa bombs were such a hit that I had to make them again but this time for St. Patrick’s Day. It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t have something festive for today right?
Let’s get started!
St. Patrick’s Day Hot Cocoa Bombs
- Silicone mold
- 1 1/2 Cup Green Melting Wafers
- 1/2 Cup White Melting Wafers (for drizzle)
- Hot Cocoa Mix
- Mini Marshmallows
- St. Patrick's Day Sprinkles
Using a bowl and the microwave, heat your green melting wafers in 30 second increments until your wafers have melted and become smooth.
Once your wafers are melted you will want to coat your silicone molds, making sure that all of the sides and bottom is well coated. You can use a spoon for this process but another good option is a decorating brush made for baking.
Place the mold in the fridge and allow for the bomb halves to set up. This will take approximately 30 minutes.
Once your hot cocoa bomb halves have set you can then pop them out of the molds and fill them with the hot chocolate contents. Which for this set is regular hot chocolate mix and mini marshmallows. This amount will make 3 bombs so you will want to fill 3 with your mix and leave 3 for making the top.
Using a plate heated by the microwave, or a pan on the stove, melt the rim of an empty green bomb half and place it on top of one of the filled sides. Allow the wafers to set.
Using piping bags or a filled Ziploc bag, drizzle on your white chocolate over the top, sprinkle with your St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles and allow it to set up again. Note: We also did a layer of green drizzle, if you want to do this you will need to allow your first color drizzle to set, drizzle the next color and then add your sprinkles.
To make the hot chocolate add 1 hot chocolate bomb to a mug and pour 8-10 ounces of hot milk over top or you can drop your bomb into a mug of hot milk. Stir until melted.
If you are using bigger molds, you will need to use more green melting wafers. This recipe amount will make 3 bombs but you will have ingredients left over to make additional ones.
If you bomb halves don’t sit evenly together you can always take additional melting wafers and add some around the rim to get a complete seal on your hot cocoa bomb.
Hot Cocoa bombs are some of my favorite things to make for the kids because they love hot chocolate but this totally makes it so much more fun. Add in some festive vibes and you have a recipe for our home! You know we had to go all out with the sprinkles but you can choose to just do the white drizzle and leave off the sprinkles. My kids loved that they had a million all over them!
I truly love being able to do things like this for my littles. They were so excited to watch the milk turn green and then drink their hot cocoa. Things like this brings a tiny bit of normalcy to their lives when we are having such a crazy time personally. Being that mama that makes their childhood full of celebrations for all holidays fills up my mama cup.
