Frozen is a Disney juggernaut and I don’t think there is a chance of it ever slowing down!
I love both of the Frozen movies (I actually think I prefer 2 over 1!) and regular readers will know that we love the whole gang – Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf! (Check out all of my Frozen printables.)
If you have Frozen-mad kids – or if it’s you yourself that loves the movies, then you HAVE to make a batch of these gorgeous Elsa Hot Cocoa Bombs!
We’re just as mad for hot chocolate bombs as we are for Frozen! Making these Instagram-worthy treats is so much easier than you think, and when they melt in warm milk, they taste scrumptious!
These Frozen hot choc bombs would be great to give out as party favors or as gifts. I like to package them up in individual cupcake boxes with a little tissue paper for support and protection.
And they would make great drinks for a sleepover or Frozen-themed party or movie night.
Head over to my friend Sarah at Ruffles & Rain Boots to make her Princess Anna Hot Cocoa Bombs – you can’t have one sister without the other!

Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients (and equipment) needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon or other stores if available online. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.
- Light Blue Candy Melts/Wafers
- Hot Cocoa/Hot Chocolate Powder – use your favorite brand.
- Mini Marshmallows
- Silver Food/Cake Spray
- Wilton White Sparkling Sugar
- Snowflake Sprinkles
- Wilton Icing Crowns – these come in a pack of gold and silver, you only need the silver ones.
- Sphere/Round Silicone Mold – ideally you want to have two so that you can make more hot choc bombs at one time! They come in different sizes, ours were made using a mold that is about 2.5″/70mm, but you could make them a little smaller or bigger if you wanted to (or already have a mold at home).
- Disposable Piping Bag – to drizzle melted candy over the bombs. Or you could use a plastic food bag with the corner snipped off instead. Or you could use a squeeze bottle.
Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. You can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

How Do I Make Elsa Hot Cocoa Bombs?
Check out the printable recipe card below with full ingredients and instructions. Any demonstration photos do not print out to save your ink.
- 1 bag of light blue candy melts
- 2 cups of cocoa mix
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 can of Wilton silver cake spray
- 1 container of sugar crystal sprinkles
- 1 container of snowflake sprinkles
- 1 package of Wilton icing crown decorations
- To prepare your hot cocoa bomb molds, use a paper towel or clean kitchen cloth to wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate sphere to have a shiny coat on it.
- To make removing the chocolate shells from the mold easier, you can cut each section of the mold so you have individual pieces. This can give you more control, but is 100% optional and a personal choice! The photo below is of another chocolate bomb, but demonstrates what I mean!
- Line a cookie sheet (or tray or plate) with wax paper and set it aside.
- Pour the blue candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 45-second intervals, stirring each time until the candy is completely melted and smooth. Alternatively, follow the directions on the package.
- Spoon about 1 to 2 tablespoons of the melted candy into one of the mold cavities
- Carefully swirl the melted candy to completely coat the inside of the mold. You may need to use the back of a spoon to help spread the melted candy.
- Lightly shake the extra candy back into the bowl.
- Repeat steps 5-7 for as many chocolate bombs as you are making. You will need two halves per bomb.
- Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes to set. You may want to add an additional layer of candy melts if you feel that the first layer is too thin. Add extra melted candy and place mold back in the fridge to set.
- Gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened candy and carefully place it onto your prepared cookie sheet.
- Repeat step 10 with the rest of the set molded candy.
- Before building the molds you will want to make sure that the edges are nice and level. There are two ways you can do that:
Method 1: Warm up a shallow frying pan on the stove. Place a piece of wax paper into the pan, and holding the top half-sphere, rub gently on the wax paper until the edges start to melt a bit.
Method 2: Place a small plate in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until warm. rub the half-sphere over the plate which will gently melt the edges. This is my preferred method. Whichever method you use, you will need the warm pan/plate again to attach the spheres together.
- Once the edges are leveled, turn the half-spheres over and use spray the silver cake spray over them to create a pearl shimmer. Leave to dry for about 10 minutes.
- To build the Elsa hot chocolate bombs, place about 1½ tablespoons of chocolate hot cocoa powder into one candy half-sphere.
- Sprinkle in a few mini marshmallows. You can add some sprinkles in there too if you like!
- Carefully melt the top sphere's edge again and quickly place onto the bottom mold and hold together to make sure they adhere. make sure that there are no gaps around the middle of the blue chocolate bomb. Place on a cookie sheet to finish setting while you assemble the others.
- Melt the remaining blue candy and transfer it to a squeeze bottle or piping bag. Drizzle over the cocoa bombs and immediately sprinkle some sugar crystals, as well as a few snowflake sprinkles.
- Carefully place the silver crown in the top center of the bomb - you can add a dab of melted candy to the back to make sure it sticks.
- Leave to dry completely before using.
- To use the hot cocoa bomb, place it in a large mug, pour warm milk over it, and stir until everything is mixed together and enjoy!
You can make whatever size (and even shape!) of cocoa bomb that you like as long as they fit inside your mug! We used a mold approx 2.5"/70mm - you can make them slightly bigger or smaller.
