How To Make Christmas Hot Cocoa Bombs

How To Make Christmas Hot Cocoa Bombs


4 minute read

Tis the season for Christmas Hot Cocoa Bombs! Let's make one together, shall we? 

Tools needed:

COLOR YOUR CHOCOLATE & POUR IN THE MOLD

Pour your melted white chocolate (after you color it - see demo below of using Ruby Red Choc Elite) into the mold and then do one of two things: use a a small plastic cake tool or paint brush, to get the chocolate all around the edge of the mold. OR gently move your mold around in small circular motions, until the chocolate covers the entire area.

DEMOLD THE COCOA BOMB

Let the chocolate fully set up before de-molding, it should be dry to the touch in all areas! We recommend waiting at least an hour before attempting to de-mold. Once completely dry, peel back the silicone away from your shell. Go slow, so the chocolate does not crack and don't get discouraged if it does! It takes a couple of tries to get used to it - especially if this is your first time making hot cocoa bombs!

ADD THE GOODIES!

Fill the first hot cocoa bomb shell with all of your goodies! Cocoa powder and mini marshmallows!

PUT THE TWO PIECES TOGETHER

Take your second hot cocoa bomb shell and using a warm skillet or hot plate, quickly place down (edge first) to warm the edge of your cocoa bomb and then gently align / attach to the first shell! You need one shell to have warm edges, so you can put together the two sides and make your cocoa bomb!

DUST THE GOLD BUCKLE

Dust the gold buckle of Santa's Belt with Wedding Gold Luster Dust! To do this, you will want to FIRST paint the Color Solution straight on the buckle, let it dry for 2 mins. Then go back and gently dry dust small amounts of Wedding Gold! The Color Solution will help this to adhere incredibly well and it is the BEST way to apply luster dust to chocolate - see additional Tutorial Here (click here). 

Then create your edible paint with Turkish Black Painting Powder and, The Color Solution. You will want an acrylic like consistency in the paint palette and you will be amazed to see just how much coverage you get with one layer! We always apply 2 layers, just to ensure it is all covered up. 

CREATE EDIBLE PAINT FOR THE BELT

Create an edible paint using Turkish Black Paint Powder and The Color Solution.

Creating the perfect consistency is KEY when painting onto any confection. You want to start with a very small amount of Elite Powder and add The Color Solution drop by drop, until you achieve the perfect painting consistency. It will remind you of acrylic paint! The amazing perk to using Color Solution instead of alcohol for confectionary painting are the gums inside of it ... it gives you a MUCH LONGER working time than straight vodka or ever clear.  However, all you have to do is keep adding small drops of Color Solution if the paint begins to dry too much during your process. 

Once you have the perfect painting consistency, simply begin painting ... you will find the smoothest finish with Elite Colors and Color Solution. It will take 3-5 minutes for it to fully dry on your confection, but once it is dry - the Color Solution locks in! You will be amazed how good the coverage is when painting onto your chocolate!

If you would like even more detailed guidance on creating that perfect consistency, check out these tutorials:
