The hot cocoa bomb obsession continues! After making my St. Patrick’s Day Hot Cocoa Bombs, I knew that I wanted to continue my hot cocoa bomb journey with Easter themed cocoa bombs. Not only is it still cool enough at night for a cup of cocoa, these hot cocoa bombs will make excellent homemade Easter gifts for family and friends!
So while I was brainstorming theme ideas for my Easter hot cocoa bombs, one immediately came to mind. Bunny butts! I mean, what’s more adorable for Easter than a bunny butt! Especially when it’s bobbing around a mug about to become a delicious cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows!
These Easter themed hot cocoa bombs are made with white candy melts and filled with hot cocoa mix, marshmallows, and an Easter candy surprise! The outside of the cocoa bombs are decorated with bunny icing decorations. Serve them in Easter cupcake liners and gift them in Easter baskets or with an Easter themed mug!
Bunny Butt Hot Cocoa Bombs
I added a Cadbury Mini Egg inside each cocoa bomb as a fun surprise. You can omit that and add extra marshmallows, if you’d like. Either way, these adorable Bunny Butt Hot Cocoa Bombs will be a delicious homemade treat on Easter!
The first thing we need to do is melt our candy melts. So place them into a microwave safe bowl and microwave according to the package until it’s smooth.
Once melted, spoon a little of the candy melts into each mold and spread it evenly with the back of the spoon. Make sure that the chocolate is thick, but not too thick, and completely covers each mold to form a shell.
Pop the molds into the freezer for 5 minutes, or until they’ve hardened. Then, loosen the hardened shell from the mold. I like to do this by giving the ends and sides of the mold a tug, then gently popping the shell out of the mold.
Microwave a small plate just until it’s warm to the touch. Place the shell open-side-down onto the plate and gently move it around so the edge is smooth.
Warm up the other half of the candy shell on the plate and place on top of the filled half. Use leftover melted candy to seal the seam.
Then, add bunny butt icing decorations (I used these) to the cocoa bombs by adding a little of the melted candy to the back of the decoration and gently pressing it onto the cocoa bomb. You might want to hold it in place a second or two just so it sticks.
Repeat with the rest of the cocoa bombs. Then, place them in cupcake liners and freeze for another 5 minutes so the decorations set in place.
When you’re ready to make a cup of hot cocoa, place a hot cocoa bomb into a mug. Then, pour warm milk over the hot cocoa bomb, give it a stir, and watch the hot cocoa bomb melt into a delicious, creamy, cocoa drink!
- 2 cups bright white candy melts
- 1 cup hot chocolate mix
- 1 cup mini marshmallows, or marshmallow bits
- Bunny feet and tail icing decorations
- Easter cupcake liners
- Optional: Cadbury Mini Eggs
- Place the candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and microwave according to package.
- Place the molds onto a small baking sheet. Spoon a little of the melted candy into the mold.
- Use the back of the spoon to spread the candy evenly around the sides of the mold. You want it to be thick, but not too thick. It's okay if some of the chocolate goes over the edge of the mold.
- Once the molds are completely filled, place them in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until completely solid.
- To loosen the candy shell from the mold, grab each end and give the mold a light tug. Then, gently pop out one of the shell halves.
- Microwave a small plate just until it's warm to the touch (about 35 seconds for me). Place the open side of the shell half onto the plate and move it gently around the surface until the edge is smooth.
- Spoon a little of the hot chocolate mix into the shell. Then, top with mini marshmallows and a Cadbury Mini Egg, if desired.
- Grab another shell half, warm it on the plate to create a smooth edge, and place on top of the filled shell.
- Use extra melted candy to seal the seam of the cocoa bomb.
- Then, add a little melted candy to the back of the icing decorations and set into place on the cocoa bomb.
- Place the finished cocoa bomb in an Easter cupcake liner and freeze again for 5 minutes.
- Repeat with the rest of the candy shell halves until all of the cocoa bombs are made.
- Store hot cocoa bombs in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer until ready to use or gift.
So adorbs! Right? If you want to gift these hot cocoa bombs for Easter, I suggest wrapping the cocoa bomb (cupcake liner and all) in plastic wrap or placing it into a small cellophane bag. Then, add them to Easter baskets or bring them to your Easter celebration!
