You can find all of these ingredients at your local grocery store and through online stores like Amazon.
All you need is:

EASTER HOT COCOA BOMB RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
Begin by placing the milk chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until smooth and creamy.
Stir the chocolate well, and spoon or ladle into the molds, making sure to coat the inside of the molds.
Pour the excess milk chocolate back into the bowl, and place the molds in the refrigerator, and let harden for 15 minutes or in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove molds from the refrigerator or freezer, and carefully remove the half chocolate eggs from molds, placing 6 half eggs/bunnies in a row.
These will be the bottom parts or half of the cocoa bombs.
Heat a nonstick skillet, on low, and place one half eggs with the open side down, melting just the edges, remove, and place on a cookie sheet, and fill the egg/bunnies with the powdered cocoa mix.
Repeat, until all 6 eggs/bunnies are done.
Place the other half of the chocolate eggs in the skillet, with the open side down, and melt just the edges of the eggs/bunnies.
Remove from the skillet, and immediately place on one of the chocolate eggs/bunnies, filled with the cocoa, etc., making the top of the egg/bunny.
Or place a microwave-safe plate in the microwave for 1 minute and then remove and place the edges of the cocoa bomb on it to melt it.
Hold the hot cocoa bomb in place for a few seconds to make sure the top and bottom are melted together.
When all the cocoa bombs have been filled and melted together, place them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or the freezer for 5 minutes, until chocolate is completely set.
Remove from the refrigerator or freezer, and set the cookie sheet on the counter.
Place one hot cocoa bomb in the bottom of a large mug, and pour heated milk over the top.
The cocoa bomb will melt and bubble. Stir the powdered cocoa, and enjoy!
In about an hour, you’ll have a fun hot chocolate drink that’s perfect for Easter ready to serve!
