Easter Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs: Fun Treats For Kids To Make

It’s always the right time for hot chocolate, especially when you have a special occasion like Easter and Easter Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs to match.

Making an Easter Egg hot chocolate bomb is even more fun than a traditional hot chocolate bomb and it’s as easy and simple as switching out the mold. If you don’t have an Easter egg-shaped mold of your own, you can easily find one on Amazon.

Kid Made Easter Treats

This is an especially fun project to do with kids. Making Easter Egg hot chocolate bombs is easy and safe. It’s a unique hands-on experience that kids can learn from while having fun. They will enjoy making the chocolate eggs in the molds and then decorating them, learning the whole time about why this project works, and getting creative with personalizing their own egg. This family baking time can become a new tradition and even replace decorating real eggs with vinegar and food colouring. They are certainly easier to enjoy.

Marshmallow Rabbits

The biggest surprise of these Easter Egg hot chocolate bombs is the marshmallow rabbits inside the Easter Eggs. I used Dare Real Hoppy Marshmallow Rabbits, which are special candies for Easter. These rabbits are gluten-free, fat free, peanut free, soy-free, and free of a variety of other allergens including fish, egg, etc. This recipe requires 12 rabbits and you will also need three Easter Egg molds to get the ingredients exactly right for these particular Easter Egg hot chocolate bombs.

A Whole Day of Enjoyment

You can enjoy these Easter Egg hot chocolate bombs any way you like. What I think is the most fun thing about them is that you can make them in the morning and use them as decor all day, then you can enjoy them as an evening treat to round out a perfect holiday.

Easter Hot Cocoa Bombs

How to Make the Egg Hot Cocoa Bombs

  1. Place the bag of chocolate chips in a microwavable safe bowl in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Repeat the same for the white chocolate chips.
  2. Pour 1 tbsp of chocolate into each chocolate mold (white or chocolate). For a coloured chocolate egg, add a few drops of food colouring or use concentrated icing gel colours to the white melted chocolate chips until desired colour. Use a spoon to swirl the chocolate around and coat the edges.
  3. Make sure to spoon the chocolate up the sides until it makes a thicker shell.
  4. Put the chocolate mold in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes or until it’s set.
  5. When the chocolate is set, remove from the refrigerator, and brush a second coat of chocolate around the edges and chill again.
  6. To remove egg spheres from the mold, tug on the silicone mold right around the chocolate you want to remove and the chocolate will pop out. You should have 24 spheres.
  7. Spoon 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix in 12 of the chocolate spheres and add 1 rabbit marshmallow on top.
  8. Heat a plate in the microwave for 30 seconds, and be careful as the plate might be hot. Take 1 plate for each different colour chocolate melt.
  9. Carefully take the open side of the sphere and place it onto the plate to melt off the uneven edges to create a smooth edging.
  10. Connect 1 empty half chocolate bomb to 1 half that is full of the mixture and seal together. As the melted chocolate hardens, it will seal.
  11. Heat up the left over chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds intervals until it’s soft again. Pour it in a Ziplock bag and cut a tiny piece at one of the ends or use a pasty bag with a tip. You can also use a spoon to drizzle instead of a bag.
  12. Drizzle the melted chocolate over top of the hot cocoa bomb.
  13. Add sprinkles on the drizzled chocolate and let dry in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before serving.

Tips For Ensuring Shiny Chocolates

  • Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny coat on it.
