All October long get in the mood for Halloween by making hot chocolate with these spooky Halloween Cocoa Bombs. These orange chocolate cocoa bombs are decorated with Halloween confetti sprinkles and filled with hot cocoa mix. 

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 oz orange candy melts
  • 2 oz black candy melts
  • 6 tbsp hot cocoa mix
  • Halloween confetti sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Place a large plate into the freezer.
  2. Pour the orange candy melts into a bowl and heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each heat session, until the candy is fully melted.
  3. Add a small spoonful of melted candy to all of the mold cavities, then coat the melted candy around the mold, making sure to get all the way up the sides. 
  4. Place candy-coated molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to add a second coat of melted candy to the molds.
  6. Remove the chilled plate and candy-coated mold from the freezer. Carefully remove each candy-coated sphere from the mold and place it onto the chilled plate.

  8. Put one half-sphere upside down on the heated plate to slightly melt the candy-coated edge.
  9. Fill it with 1 tablespoon cocoa mix.
