tutorial: winnie the pooh + piglet hot cocoa bombs
Post: January 28, 2022
Hot chocolate bombs are chocolate spheres that are filled with anything from cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy, cookies, sprinkles, edible glitter, and more. These are cocoa bombs designed to look like two of my favorite characters – Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. They open up when introduced to a hot beverage, like milk and coffee, which can be a delightful surprise. #hotcocoabombs #hotchocolate #winniethepooh #disney

· Plastic spoon or pastry brush
· Piping bag (optional) or ziploc bags
· 6-12 ounces light pink candy melts or white chocolate chips
· 6-12 ounces pink candy melts or white chocolate chips
· 6-12 ounces red candy melts or white chocolate chips
· 6-12 ounces yellow candy melts or white chocolate chips
· 3 ounces black candy melts or chocolate chips
· Your favorite cocoa mix
· Edible glitter (optional)
· Sprinkles (optional)
Step 1 – Place chocolate in a heat proof, microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals stirring in between each interval. This takes about 1.5 to 2 minutes depending on your microwave.
o Alternative option is too use a chocolate melter/heater. Add candy coating/candy melt or chocolate. Just stir occasionally until smooth.
Step 2 – Fill 3 silicone molds with about 1 tablespoon of red melt to each silicone mold half sphere. Fill the other three with yellow for Winnie the Pooh’s face. Use the back of a plastic spoon to spread around the chocolate or melt until it’s completely coated. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes or until it’s firm to the touch. With the left-over yellow melts, pipe small circles on a piece of parchment for the ears and set aside.
Step 3 – Spread a second coat of chocolate or candy melt between all of the wells. It’s best to make the rims thicker. Refrigerate 10-30 minutes or until it’s firm to the touch.
Step 4 – Release the half spheres by pulling around the mold edges to help release the chocolate. Then press your finger in the center of the half sphere and carefully push out.
Step 5 – Clean up the bottom cocoa bomb half by microwaving a plate for two to four minutes and then gently melting.
o Alternative method. Heat a baking sheet in the oven.
Step 6 – Melt chocolate or black candy melts and place in piping bag. Then pipe face on yellow half sphere cocoa bombs. Now gently melt that yellow half sphere, that has a face, and add it to the filled cocoa bomb half to close. Now melt the ears and attach. Allow everything to set.
o Tip: Work quickly so there aren’t fingerprints left.
Hot chocolate bomb success!!
