Print Recipe


  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 2 ounces black candy melts
  • 6 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
  • Halloween confetti sprinkles


  • Place a large plate into the freezer.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add the orange candy melts. Heat the candy melts on high in 30 second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until the candy is fully melted.
  • Add a small spoonful of melted candy to all of the mold cavities. Using the back of a spoon, smooth the melted candy in a thin layer around the mold making sure to coat the inside of the molds completely. Place candy coated molds into the freezer for 5 minutes. Repeat steps, adding a second layer of melted candy to the mold.
  • Remove the chilled plate and candy coated mold from the freezer. Carefully remove each candy coated sphere from the mold and place onto the chilled plate.
  • Heat a separate small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Using disposable kitchen cooking gloves, place one half sphere upside down on the heated plate to slightly melt edges.
  • Add 1 tablespoon cocoa mix to the inside of the sphere.
  • Repeat step 6 with another half sphere and seal the two melted edges together to form a ball. The melted candy should fuse the spheres together nicely. If a firmer seal is needed, use the brush or your finger to spread a little melted candy around the seam. Place balls on a cool plate.
  • Add the black candy melts to a piping bag or small resealable baggie. Heat candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds. Massage the bag a bit to blend the candy. Snip off a ¼-inch tip off the bottom corner of the baggie. Drizzle a small amount of the blank candy melts over each cocoa bomb.
  • Sprinkle each with Halloween confetti sprinkles. Store in a cool place.
  • To serve, place a cocoa bomb into a mug, then pour 6 ounces of hot milk or water over the cocoa bomb. Watch for the cocoa bomb to melt. Stir well before drinking.
