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.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

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. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measurements, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).

Hot Cocoa Bomb Making Tips

Hot cocoa bombs are a lot easier to make than you might think. The very first time I made them I thought I would fail, but I couldn’t believe how easy it actually was! Here are my tips for success!

  • Place a plate in the freezer before you start making the outer shells (half-spheres). Place the shells onto the cold plate when assembling the cocoa bombs to help keep them cool.
  • Work quickly, but steadily when forming the half-spheres. I find using the back of a measuring spoon helps to spread the melted candy (or chocolate) evenly around the mold.
  • You may want to add a second layer of melted candy after the first layer has set. This is absolutely fine to do, and I often add a second layer to make sure the bombs are sturdy – they will still melt when the time comes!
  • Carefully peel the silicone mold away to pop out the spheres. If you are worried about other ones breaking, you could always cut your mold into individual spheres. As you become more experienced and skills you’ll find that it is not as tricky as you might think.
  • Before filling your cocoa bombs, you will want to make sure the edges are even so that when you seal them together they adhere well without any gaps.
  • My preferred method is to place a small plate in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until warm and then rubbing the candy shell over the plate to gently melt the edges.
  • You can also heat up a shallow pan on the stove, place a piece of wax paper into the pan, rub the candy sphere on that to gently melt.
  • Follow the directions on the package of hot chocolate mix to see how much you need to make a mug of hot chocolate, and place that inside the bomb. 1-2 tablespoons should probably be enough, and will fit intside the cocoa bombs.
  • To attach the top half-sphere to the bottom, gently melt it again and place carefully onto the filled sphere, holding in place until it sets. If you find there are any gaps, use a little melted candy to seal up the hole. You could also pipe melted cany around the edge to stick the two halves together.

Snowman Hot Cocoa Bombs

Snowman Hot Cocoa Bombs

Yield: 8
Prep Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour

These White Chocolate Snowman Hot Cocoa Bombs are perfect for the holiday season!


  • Silicone Sphere Mold
  • 30oz/850g of Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • 2 cups of milk or white chocolate hot cocoa mix
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 tube of orange icing
  • 1 tube of black icing


  1. To prepare your molds, use a paper towel or clean kitchen cloth to wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will help your chocolate sphere to have a shiny coat on it.
  2. 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! See the photo below.

  3. Pour the white chocolate wafers into a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 45-second intervals, stirring each time until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Alternatively, follow the directions on the package.
  4. Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of the melted candy into one of the mold cavities.
  5. Carefully swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold Lightly shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl. Repeat for as many chocolate bombs as you are making. You will need two halves per bomb.
  6. Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
  7. Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened chocolate shell and carefully place the mold onto the cookie sheet. Repeat with all of the molds.
  8. Before building the cocoa bombs 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.
  9. Using your method of choice as listed above, gently melt the rim of each half-sphere.

  10. Fill 4 half-spheres, each with 1-2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix, a few mini marshmallows.

  11. There are two methods for attaching the top half-shell to the bottom one:

    Method 1: Pour some melted chocolate into a disposable piping bag, then pipe it around the edge of the bottom shell. Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom one and gently hold them in place for 30-60 seconds to allow the piped chocolate to harden and "glue" the pieces together.

    Method 2: Use one of the melting options in step 11 then stick the top to the bottom, holding together until set.
  12. Whichever method you use, carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there are no gaps around the middle of the chocolate bombs.
  13. Using the tubes of orange and black icing, pipe the eyes, carrot nose, and smile onto the cocoa bomb. Leave to set.
  14. To serve, place the snowman hot cocoa bomb into a mug, then pour 6 oz (180ml) of milk over the bomb. Stir well and enjoy!
