Every year when I was growing up, my birthday would clash with a huge snow storm. Being born in early February in NYC is not the best time for weather at ALL.

  • 1-12oz bag Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
  • Hot Cocoa Bomb Silicone Mold
  • Scoopable Hot Cocoa Powder
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Birthday Sprinkles
  • Decorating Bag


  1.  Place 12 ounces of candy melts in a microwave safe bowl, heat on 50% power in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. 
  2. Use a teaspoon to scoop the chocolate into the half circles on the silicone mold, one at a time. Spreading the chocolate evenly onto the sides and bottom of mold until completely coated in melted chocolate. Do the same to all 12 half circles. 
  3. Place the silicone molds into the freezer for 2-3 minutes and remove.
  4. Add a second layer of melted chocolate to the half circles molds, especially on the edges.
  5. Freeze again for another minute and remove.
  6. Carefully stretch the silicone molds to remove the half circles. 
  7. Turn the mold upside down and place the rounded sides in between the molds as a stand while filling.
  8. Add 1 tablespoon and of hot cocoa powder to the one side, about 5 mini marshmallows, and some sprinkles.
  9. Reheat the chocolate if it has hardened and add 4 tablespoons to a decorating bag.
  10. Cut a small tip off the decorating bag and frost the edge of one half chocolate circle. Carefully and quickly add an empty chocolate circle on top to make a sphere and hold it in place for 15 seconds or until the chocolate has acted like glue and hardened. 
  11. Place onto a plate and drizzle melted chocolate on top with the decorating bag and quickly top with sprinkles. 
  12. Let the chocolate harden and place in a glass of warm/hot milk, stir, and watch the bomb melt to see what’s inside or place in an empty glass and pour hot milk on top of the bomb, watching it melt, and then stir.
